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

Rating: 5 stars  

When researching NGOs and charities to support, EFTC really stood out to me. When I read about the foundation and its mission, I knew I wanted to be involved. The team at EFTC have been fantastic in terms of communication and support for volunteers, even helping with arranging a lovely homestay family to stay with in Antigua.
I volunteered with the foundation during July 2019 and I was blown away with how forward thinking some of the initiatives here are, including the well balanced food for the kids, the sexual and mental health support and the university sponsorships to name but a few.
The kids here are so lovely, the staff are amazing and the opportunities for volunteering are varied. I have personally learnt a lot during my time here and while I can´t say I've saved the world by volunteering here, I do feel I've had a very real and positive impact within the foundation and with the kids.
If you have time to give while in Antigua, I would strongly recommend getting involved. If you When researching NGOs and charities to support, EFTC really stood out to me.

If you can't get down here in person, the charity relies 100% on donations, and every cent is clearly well spent, so that's another great way to be support.
Thanks
