Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We did fieldwork, seconded from another NGO, for 3 years with Kellermann Foundation. Guidance and supervision came from both Americans and Ugandans. We were enabled to accomplish our goals and surmount problems. We worked to groom local leaders to take over our project, and KF facilitated this. We had a wonderful time!

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field
 

Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We were recruited by Kellermann Foundation (KF) to serve as volunteers with their Ugandan partner, the Batwa Development Program. We will have served for three years in January, 2017, when our time in Bwindi, Uganda, ends. Our work has involved financial consulting and linguistic research into the Batwa narrative tradition.

We have excellent communications and support with KF. They are keenly interested in our reports, and do a great job of partnering with their Ugandan partners. At least once a year, sometime more, KF home office people, as well as Scott Kellermann, the founder, come and visit.

KF has set up three Ugandan partners: Batwa Development Program, Bwindi Community Hospital, and Bwindi Nursing School. All three are Ugandan administered and effective in their outreach.

Long term volunteers come and work with all three Ugandan partners. They have come from the UK, Canada, Switzerland, and the United States. Examples of these include medical people, managerial consultants, clergy and linguists. KF will partner with other sending organizations. One of these, my own sponsor, is SIL International.
