Review for Imagine Scholar, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Imagine Scholar is a great example of a nonprofit revolutionising development through smart initiatives and innovative methods, rather than huge spending. In the time I spent with them, I was amazed by the quality of the education that the children in the program recieved, without extensive spending on facilities. The organisation is run from top-to-bottom with a visionary approach, encapsulating the idea that the community can be the first to help themselves. Their program doesn't just teach maths and science, it teaches the children to become innovators in their community, to become lifelong learners and to appreciate how their efforts can rewards themselves and their peers rewards.

The work of the co-ordinators and the staff on the ground contributes to an educational model that not only helps the kids in the program, but also has multiplier effects on the entire community. Imagine Scholar is a nonprofit that I loved to be a part of, but I also wish could become a model replicated on a much larger scale.
