My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for African Childrens Haven, Galveston, TX, USA
I was a long-time supporter of educational program at the St. Philips Primary School located in the second largest slum in Nairobi, Kenya, when I came to know African Children's Haven. ACH is a US nonprofit that supports a variety of programs for poor African children, especially orphans and girls living in extreme poverty. In 2009 I approached ACH for financial support for St. Philips and was pleased to receive an immediate and positive response. Since then, ACH has provided significant assistance to the school, to its students and to its many dedicated teachers. I have worked hand-in-hand with ACH ever since on a variety of projects, including a visit to the Nairobi National Game Reserve as part of the students’ science education. Although the children lived just a few kilometers from the Reserve, none had ever visited. Today, ACH is lending valuable support to St. Philips and is working hard to help the school improve the quality of the education it provides to its students. Although I am now based in the USA, I continue to collaborate with ACH. It is rewarding to know that both girls and boys after finishing their primary studies now have the opportunity to receive scholarships for continuing on to secondary education. From personal experience I can say that ACH is providing commendable and dedicated support to the school. I hope that others like me will donate to their valuable programs, programs that help so many African children at St. Philips and in a variety of projects across Eastern and Southern Africa.
