Review for African Childrens Haven, Galveston, TX, USA
I support African Children's Haven because they develop programs that impact both the immediate and future needs of the communities they serve. Their programs demonstrate a real connection to the people they serve - people who benefit in profound ways from the services. ACH's support of education and child welfare has been especially meaningful to me. For example, their support of secondary school education for disadvantaged girls, with the goal of helping students then go on to university studies will benefit not only the girls own lives, but their communities, too. This type of deliberate, longer term effort and goal-setting tells me that ACH understands what is at stake when they measure the value of a girl's education in a developing nation.
The leaders of ACH are veterans of the non-profit and NGO world and it shows in both the way they execute their programs and how they interact with donors. Their communication efforts are exceptional. The personal involvement of the ACH team means they are able to report on the people and communities they serve with clarity and a great depth of understanding. As a donor who does not spend much time in the non-profit world, I find it reassuring to know that the organization I engage with has invested so much forethought into its efforts to help protect and nurture children who have such great needs.
