Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a Travel Advisor. in 2012 , a colleague and I spent one month in Africa seeing new and different sites to enrich our lives and offer tour clientele. He dream was to walk with the gorillas, mine was to visit the pygmy tribe in Bwindi Inpenetrable National Park in Uganda. This was an experience of a life time. I spent most of the day visiting in the mountains with the Batwa people (the Batwa Experience), laughing talking and learning about their culture and each other (via a native translator). Upon my return to the low land - I had the opportunity to visit the schools and facilities build to assist with service o and for the Batwa people.
This was my first introduction to the Kellerman Foundation. It was there I witness the results of the good works of the Foundation and its people. I spoke with the local elders (one who escorted me on my hike) and saw the true commitment they felt about their growth and the contributions made to them and their people. More importantly to me - I saw the works of artisans of the tribe involved in making and bringing their goods for sale in the Developments' shop and children running home from school. Such a good feeling! I donate and hope to continue- by sending others and $$ donations.Thanks to the assistance and support of The Kellerman Foundation.
