Review for Village2Village Project, Inc., Fishers, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The life-changing work that Village2Village Project accomplishes in the lives of children and families in eastern Uganda grabbed hold of my heart from the first moment I learned about it. My family signed on to sponsor a little boy within the first year of V2V's existence, and have gone on to also sponsor a girl we have been blessed to watch grow into a lovely young woman with a bright future before her. V2V's thoughtful approach to grow slowly enough to truly invest the time and resources into nurturing the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each child in its program allowed us to feel deeply involved and connected to the children we sponsored. It was joyful and humbling to have such detailed awareness of the difference our sponsorship was making in their lives!

This also encouraged me to get involved with Village2Village Project as a volunteer early on, and I have been able to help out in a number of ways that gave me a front row seat into how this organization conducts itself. I quickly came to admire and respect the absolute integrity with which Director Laurie Kroll and V2V's board members approached every aspect of the organization's work. Coupled with thoughtful sensitivity towards the culture of the country in which it serves, the result has earned V2V a position of deep trust and high regard in Uganda. V2V is known for its many efforts to reach beyond just the children and families in its programs to benefit the general community both during times of crisis and in ways that make a difference in the day-to-day quality of life for so many (such as providing a well for an entire village area).

These days I serve on Village2Village's Board and continue to be so impressed with the passion and commitment of the people who are dedicated to growing Village2Village's impact in creating changed futures for children and families who formerly lived without hope. I'm so excited to see what Village2Village accomplishes in Serere, Uganda, in the days to come!

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Village2Village Project for more than 10 years now. My family has sponsored two children in the program and I have helped with sponsor communications and administrative tasks over the years, as well as recently joining the Board. It has been an immense privilege to be part of an organization that from its beginning has been committed to absolute integrity and transparency. I love the way the staff invests so much time and caring into each child in the program as well as their family members- they come to truly know and love these kids and support them spiritually and emotionally as well as meeting their physical needs. This kind of compassionate care is raising up young adults who have been enabled to reach their full potential and serve as leaders and role models in their communities.
