My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mainsprings: Janada L. Batchelor Foundation for Children Inc., Tulsa, OK, USA
I had the pleasure of working with Mainsprings JBFC for three, going on four, years now and have only high praise for their organization, community, and programs. Having travelled to Mwanza, Tanzania with large groups of students on three occasions now, each year has been a worthy excursion, and the students I have brought have consistently had a wonderful experience, both deeply personal and eye opening. The staff and directors have in place a consistent and reliable program, involving the students at JBFC and members of the Kitongo community. They also have allowed for flexibility in our program with them and provided opportunities for personal growth through a variety of on-campus activities, classes, and meals. It has been worthwhile working with Mainsprings and their commitment to their students and community is the same for their visiting volunteers. It is exciting to know their hard work and effort over the years has had an impact on many young lives, but also their greater community, leading to their welcomed expansion beyond JBFC. We look forward to many years ahead working with Mainsprings and highly recommend them to those seeking a reliable and vetted volunteer program in the Mwanza region of Tanzania.
