Review for Maasai Girls Education Fund, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am proud to have worked with Maasai Girls Education Fund for more than ten years and to be a sponsor of a Maasai student. What this small, effective organization has been able to do for Maasai girls and young women in Kenya is close to miraculous. Not only does the organization find and stick by girls in need of an education, often helping them escape early marriage and a life of poverty, it also works to educate all members of the Maasai community about why it is important to educate girls. Young women go on to higher education and eventually jobs, which, more often than not, involve giving back to their own communities. I could not recommend this organization more.

Review for African Childrens Haven, Galveston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I continue to be impressed with the work of African Childrens Haven in Africa. With a heavy focus on supporting young children in school, girls in high school, lunch programs for students, sex education for adolescents, and more, this organization is making a difference in the lives of hundreds of extremely poor children. The organization's leadership includes individuals who have decades of experience on the ground in Sub Saharan Africa. They have implemented a system that provides oversight of their programs to ensure they are effective and to modify them when necessary. ACH keeps administrative expenses to a minimum without jeopardizing results. Overall, a wonderful organization to support!

Review for African Childrens Haven, Galveston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known African Childrens Haven and its work since its inception. I was fortunate to be able to visit one of the schools it supports in Kenya and was amazed by the commitment of its staff members to the students and the joy and love they projected in their work. The children were learning, receiving nourishing meals, and very happy. African Childrens Haven is extremely good at choosing the local groups it supports and therefore ensuring that children truly benefit. I also have been impressed with the organization's commitment to helping African high school girls interested in the sciences go to school. African Childrens Haven's support of poor kids, primarily through education, is changing lives and creating better futures.
