Review for Kironde Education and Health Fund, Cambridge, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been working with this small non-profit for less than a year. I am helping out by offering ideas, attending board meetings, networking to find other people who want to help, and looking for other resources. The water tank project is really inspirational---you should read about it at the website!

What I love about KEHF is that it respects and supports the knowledge and wisdom of the villagers (who have their own non-profit---KICHIN). The governing mind-set is to explore possibilities in an effectively systems-thinking view, and then support the implementation of high-leverage interventions (done by the stakeholders through KICHIN) in the right places, that have far-reaching system effects and will tend to last over time.

Past successes have led to excitement and organizational momentum for the villagers and their efforts. If you are in the Boston area and want to help out through volunteering or donating, you could have a significant impact since this is a small non-profit and any help can make a big difference!
