Review for Soccer Without Borders, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been volunteering and providing financial assistance to Soccer Without Borders for nearly five years. I continue to be impressed with the professionalism, work ethic, and sincere care in helping children that both the U.S.- and Uganda-based staff exhibit. I believe the programs make a huge difference in people's lives and that SWB's mission is extremely well thought out and executed.

Review for Soccer Without Borders, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Soccer Without Borders for a few years. I have volunteered at the SWB Kampala Uganda annual Youth Festival three times and I continue to support the organization, and that location specifically, monetarily each month.

To say that I am a big fan of and a huge believer in SWB would be an understatement. From top to bottom I believe the organization is very well run, has the right value structure, and truly "gets" what it means to help and serve others.

I am always impressed with the dedication and professionalism of SWB's staff members—both those in the U.S. and in Uganda. And, as people often say about volunteer opportunities, I get as much, if not more, out of helping and volunteering with SWB than the kids in Uganda that I am assisting. I've made some great friends through SWB and I always look forward to planning and making my next trip to SWB Kampala. How the organization affects the lives of others, in the U.S. and internationally, is astounding.

Review for Soccer Without Borders, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered at SWB Kampala, Uganda two times in January 2014 and January 2015. Regarding the Kampala program, I have been very impressed with the staff members' commitment, interest in the children, and the immense value they bring to the community. Here in the U.S., the staff members have been top-notch with regards to preparing volunteers, coordinating travel logistics, and being available to answer questions. I continue to assist SWB in a few ways and I think the work the group is doing to help children in the U.S. is extraordinary.
