My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for GIVE A DAY GLOBAL, San Francisco, CA, USA
As an avid traveler, I look for opportunities to interact with locals and encourage cultural exchanges. As a volunteer and advisor to non-profits at home, I look for organizations that may benefit from my experience. GADG afforded me great opportunities to do both with vetted charities in SE Asia. Near Chiang Mai in northern Thailand, I spent time at Warm Hearts Worldwide helping with its bio-char sustainable agriculture project, assisting other volunteers in marketing efforts and discussing fundraising strategies with the director. In Siem Reap, Cambodia, I volunteered at Elma School, teaching English classes to elementary school-aged students and spending time with the principal, a remarkable young man. I will definitely turn to GADG to find volunteer opportunities for my future travels.
