Review for Make A Difference Now, Boise, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Early last year I volunteered with Make A Difference (MAD), a small grassroots organization that is passionate about educating orphans and vulnerable children in Tanzania. I was so inspired by this organization that I took a sabbatical from my business and am volunteering for a year. Now eight months into this assignment I am more impressed than ever. Not only does MAD educate children, they do significant investments in the children's school. This not only supports all current students, but future students and the community.

The children are beautiful, smart, and grateful for the opportunity they've been given. I work closely with Theresa, the founder and Executive Director. She works hard, is creative in fundraising, spends money carefully, and has a vision for growth that will help MAD educate even more children.

Review for Make A Difference Now, Boise, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Make A Difference has a unique and powerful focus on educating orphans as they provide support to develop them into leaders. I appreciate that they not only provide quality education but also care for the children holistically. This was apparent as I visited Tanzania earlier this year. They not only educate but provide housing, food, clothing, health care, enriching experiences outside of school, and the love and support that have resulted in children who are smart, polite, healthy, happy, and an absolute joy to be with. A focus on finding ways to support the larger community also inspired me. It may be by the children volunteering to help others, planting trees at one of the primary schools, or helping to build a community library that both the children and others can benefit from. So impressed with this non-profit I'm volunteering again next year.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
