    SACRENA Final Report: Please tell us what you think about this arbitration process
    By - Marc Maxson - Manager of Performance Analytics
    After a six month pursuit to reach a workable compromise between SACRENA’s founder and the youth it aimed to serve, GlobalGiving has decided to remove this organization from the site. The conflict resolution process (led by two locally-based volunteers from University of Oregon) resulted in the emergence of a new...

    August Visitor Postcard for SACRENA

    "In May of this year, I expressed optimism about the further development of SACRENA as a reputable and accountable organization. Since then, we have had two students attempting to work as interns for SACRENA for 8 weeks. The organization has not been able to make the steps we had hoped for and seen as necessary. Based on...

    Dear SACRENA Partners and Donors, First, thank you so much. When people come to visit SACRENA, we try to be open and don’t tell our youths, orphans or community members what to say. More so we encourage them to tell people/guest who came what they are not happy about. Here in our community people think that we are one...

      Jill I think it's hard to run any organization, but with that said, non-profits need to be clear with the donor community and the recipients about their goals and progress. SACRENA is not clear about how funds are spent and even Wycliffe Myoba's update reports to Global Giving raised red flags with me. There are too... Read more »

      Ryn This was similar to my experience at SACRENA. I also noted that the boys in the soccer program were unaware of the other activities and programs of SACRENA. I do believe that SACRENA has great potential, but I also support that it is failing to live up to that potential!
