Review for Education And Hope, Norwalk, CT, USA
Sadly, I don't have the words to adequately describe my brief visit to E&H. For years, I had heard about, but never quite understood, E&H and its programs. I was fortunate enough to visit along with the E&H audit team in January 2019; which seems like just yesterday, or ages ago. It wasn't so much what I did there; it was what I felt there. The entire place is filled with love and caring and kindness and hope. And that's before the children arrived. From the moment we met them at their school for the crosstown walk to E&H, the children were bursting with the same love and kindness and caring and hope. It seemed almost unnatural that these kids would be so excited to go to what could easily be misinterpreted as just an after-school program. I learned so much hanging out with and watching these kids (besides: don't let them take your phone, because you won't get it back any time soon). The kids cared about the 'place' and each other to an unfathomable extent. They spent those afternoons just being kids, but in a supportive and loving educational environment that would be a enriching blessing in any part of the world. Here it was so much more.
