hear what people are saying about genesis

"The GENESIS Network is a fine example of social entrepreneurship in action. Through its educational and human rights programs you are able to make a social change in the lives of individuals and families. Its ability to further social goals through community development and support, grassroots leadership development, job skills training, child protection and awareness of children’s rights is impressive and far reaching. The GENESIS network is a safety net, and a tool for empowerment for so many who are in need of its services." - Kati Machtley, Director, The Women's Summit

"The GENESIS Network effectively targets and provides solutions to some of the most pressing human rights and social development issues we face today, both at home and abroad. Focusing on local sustainability and social empowerment, the Network provides tools that enable communities to overcome challenges and seize opportunities. I am proud to support them."
-Peter Drekmeier, Mayor, Palo Alto, CA USA

"It's great to know with the utmost confidence that your support is going exactly to the place you intended. Before GENESIS I was hesitant to contribute to charities for fear of misuse, but when you can see how every dollar translates directly into schools built and children protected, all doubts disappear. What a pleasure to be a part of this movement."
