My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Ort America Inc, New York, NY, USA
As I see it, there are two main factors that contribute to a low quality of life for people: living in poverty and lacking the education to get yourself out of poverty.
ORT America has for decades provided hundreds of thousands of people the education that they need to raise themselves up and out of low socioeconomic situations.
Whether people have immigrated to a new country and need to learn a new language; or a current college grad looking for a career path; ORT's schools and programs help open the doors for new and better opportunities.
I am proud to say that my grandmother was a part of ORT in Iran teaching young children how to read and write; and I find myself honored to be following her footsteps with my association with this amazing organization.
