Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Aspect Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to building international goodwill, cross-cultural understanding and a peaceful future through educational and cultural exchange.
Aspect Foundation provides affordable study-abroad opportunities to students from nearly 30 countries around the globe. Both students and the families who host them can create lifetime memories and friendships when they participate in this unforgettable exchange.
I myself an am immigrant from Poland. I learned English when we came to the States when I was 6 yrs. old and I became a citizen... Thank God. Anyway so I guess I can relate to cross cultural ties and friendships. I just recently made friends with a student who was a foreign exchange student at UK Martin School of Public Policy Administration and that was challenging because of the language barrier since the particular individual was from South Korea and I was resourceful as far as showing her bus route..library...basic public utility functions that people need to know if they're going to livee temporarily in Lexington. :)
I love Aspect Foundation because after working as an local coordinator for the past five years, I am pleased to say they always put there students first and have great consideration for their host families. My family has hosted several students over the years. We are pleased with the student support and how friendly everyone is!
My relationship with Aspect Foundation began in 2003 when I became a host mom to one of their great students. Since then, I have hosted 8 additional students and I'm getting ready to pick student #10, that my family and I will be hosting next school year. The organization was so impressive to me that I left my corporate job in 2006, to work for Aspect Foundation full-time. Aspect Foundation has become a part of my life and my family's life. I can't say enough good things. I believe in Aspect Foundation, their students, and their mission.
