Review for Education for the Children USA, Walnut Creek, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

EFTC is one of the most incredible non-profits I have ever worked with. The work done at their School of Hope is nothing short of magic. Having served as a volunteer at the school for the last 5 months, I have witnessed firsthand the impact the school has on the lives of the children it serves.

Utilizing a holistic approach to education, the school provides much more than quality academic learning (which is on par with or better than national government standards). Students receive psychological and social services, healthy and nutritious meals, regular medical check-ups, and, if they successfully graduate, scholarships for high school and university.

The teachers are friendly and do a great job of involving and making use of eager volunteers. The volunteer program is organized and incredibly well run. And the kids...well, they are some of the most amazing, sweet, loving kids you’ll ever meet. Even with as little as they have in this world, and as much as you might think they have to be sad about...they still show up every day with a smile.

If you’re seeking a rewarding and inspiring volunteer experience, be sure to check out EFTC.
