My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Girls Gotta Run Foundation Incorporated, Washington, DC, USA
For several years now, GGRF has helped us at the Tesfa Foundation (www.tesfa.org) to fund a program called Team Tesfa. Team Tesfa is a professional track and cross country team in Addis Ababa, within which the Tesfa Foundation operates programs to support teenage girl athletes who are at risk, providing them with safe housing, education, and vocational skills. GGRF has been a reliable and professional and thoughtful partner. They fund athletic gear for the girls and women on our team, as well as some transportation, coaching, and nutrition costs. GGRF has made a significant difference in these women's lives, and helped the Team Tesfa program to get off the ground and expand its services to more women in need.

their professionalism, concern, and prompt responses in communications.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
reach all the struggling young women athletes in Addis Ababa, and perhaps much of the countryside, providing significant support.
