My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Communities Without Borders, Newton, MA, USA
I had heard heart warming stories of the impact of CWB for many years but this summer, I was really excited to go and experience this amazing opportunity. Seeing the smiling faces, the eager children and friendly people everywhere was beautiful. We brought glasses and ran vision screenings in conjunction with the CWB health screenings. We introduced 'Days for Girls', a washable sanitary napkin system wrapped up in pretty colorful cloth bags. The goal is for a sustainable sewing business to market them; and to avoid lost days for the girls.
It was great to see the improvements and changes the schools and communities had made with support of CWB. We were treated to special celebrations of songs and dances and felt very welcomed and appreciated. Dr Dick Bail and CWB has developed true working relationships with several communities and continues to look for appropriate opportunities to strengthen the education and health opportunities focusing on the children.
