Review for Children Up, Elmhurst, IL, USA
This is a wonderful volunteer organisation set up by dedicated and caring founders. We became involved as donors after working with them in an educational institution and witnessing their empathy for students. When, after retiring, they turned their energies to setting up this foundation to sponsor the education of Ugandan children, we were inspired by their efforts to make a difference in a part of the world where life is difficult for many children. There are many things we like about this organisation. There is an emphasis on working hard, values, cooperation and striving to maximise potential. Equal numbers of boys and girls are selected and their personal circumstances as well as their academic results are taken into consideration. The foundation is run with keen participation of the local people and not imposed from outside the country. Donors are kept in touch with the students' progress by reports and letters from the students. It is a privilege for us to be able to take part in an organisation which is ethically run and offers hope for a better future for a group of young people in this troubled world.
Thank you for your kind words. We do work at keeping the focus on the students excelling in their culture.
