I worked closely with Dr. Chris Stout at CGI as an intern. My experience was fulfilling and inspiring. Dr. Stout's model at CGI includes taking on small-scale projects for the betterment of the local populations, and applying each volunteer's strengths for the betterment of the projects; I was able to apply my skills and grow as a young professional while working with him. The organization is run to maximize on-the-ground impact, and all people working for the org do so on a 100% volunteer basis. The biggest barrier to CGI's success is lack of funding. Like many non-profits, CGI struggles for funding (an issue I worked on during my internship): with greater funds, comes the ability to implement more projects.

The Great!

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

The small-project approach to the public health model works. CGI has a great vibe amongst its volunteers, and it is because the projects CGI embarks on are truly making real differences in peoples' lives across the globe. To me, it is an exciting way to change the world.

I would increase organizational structure, which I believe is only possible with more stable funding. This would allow for more coordinated volunteerism and communications, and ultimately, more project work being implemented.

Make it more sustainable by building structures that do not depend on the founder (who is great and key to the success of the organization, but will leave the organization one day) and professional/paid structures to ensure the work and life of the organization.

When considering a humaitarian mission myself I was able to get personal help from the website and the director to help me to utilize my time and expertise most effectively. Chris Stout, Ph.D arranged time with me by phone and talked about his experience and shared his expertise as well as a vast amount of resources with me. I feel much better prepared to take my own humanitarian experience.

The Great!

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

Through their website and my interactions with the director.
