Review for African Childrens Haven, Galveston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I lived and worked in Nairobi, Kenya for six months of 2015 as a researcher doing governance and policy work with the NGO Transparency International - Kenya. During this time, I befriended a local good man named Dan Ndula who founded and operates a school, Overseer's Education Centre, in the Kangemi slum of Nairobi by day while working all night as a hostel watchman by night. Seeking to support my friend Dan and his small school, my family put me in touch with African Children's Haven. From across the Atlantic on the other side of the world, having never met myself or my friend Dan, ACH and its generous directors answered the call, both putting us in touch with a local charity partner in Nairobi, scheduling a future date to meet with Dan in February 2016 and gracing the school with a $250 donation which went to creating a new small office, the beginning of a library and part of a classroom. I am glad and thankful to have been put in touch with the people of ACH and highly recommend their good work.
