Review for Womens Global Education Project, Oak Park, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I met the Exec. director at a conference, was immediately drawn to her intellect, commitment, experience and most importantly, her understanding of the complex issues involved in creating true opportunities with rural communities. I joined the board shortly after meeting her and have been on the board now for four years! She knows what she is doing, has fantastic, reliable and effective partners in Senegal and Kenya and is creating opportunities for hundreds of girls and their families.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My work on their board, my visits to their project/partner in Kenya.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Secure funding for greater organizational growth.

Role:  Board Member & I teach undergraduates about gender issues in the development sector.
