Review for EDUCATE UGANDA, Omaha, NE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After getting to travel to Uganda and see the amazing work this charity has done, its hard to articulate the best words to describe my experience with EU. It starts with the tireless work from Karen Van Dyke who pours love into every thing she does. Her vision is always progressive and creative.
The organization as whole has provided the smallest gestures of love, such a simple school supplies, to large generous gifts such as school buildings and latrines. But, nothing can compare to the gift of education that this organization gives to each child in Nkokonjeru.
My experiences with Educate Uganda are positive and inspiring. I love seeing the sponsored students grow each year. There is opportunities to even communicate with the students I am sponsoring. My favorite though is that students were originally promised an education through 8th grade; however, EU has now provided top performing students with the ability to go to Secondary School (High school) to continue their studies.
This organization has inspired its donors, but moreover, its inspired the students in Uganda. It is a truly remarkable scene to walk into a school and be met with so much happiness, love and generosity in a community that was foreign to me.
5 Stars for EU!
