My sister and her partner are/were running a small NGO in Kenya, so she's seen some of World Vision's "work" in Africa and doesn't think very nice things about them. A few people here donate to Heifer International and think well of them. Perhaps look into that one?

We donated last year and were thrilled. We got the Christmas catalog from them and we selected gifts with the kids to give to family and friends. The recipients loved the idea and it meant a lot to my kids. They were actually excited when this years catalog arrived. We plan on selecting gifts again!


On a side note, I am in the middle of reading the book of the CEO of World Vision called "The Hole in Our Gospel". Excellent book that really gets you thinking!!! I highly recommend!

World Vision also has a very good charity to administrative cost ratio, meaning most of the donation goes directly to the cause rather than administration.


We've sponsored a child for six years now, I think. We also held a garage sale and used the money made to buy animals from their catalog.
