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.

I can attest to the fact that Dr. Stout is very committed to the mission of CGI to help address health inequalities through the various projects that the organization has been involved with. For example, CGI is applying for a grant, that if funded would do amazing work in Benin to develop natural plants into potential medicines and be a model for self-sufficiency for the people of that country.
In addition to CGI, Dr. Stout is an invaluable resource by generously giving of his time and energy to others who have questions and concerns about their own efforts to enact change through nonprofit work. I saw this firsthand at the recent WBEZ Global Expo in Chicago which gathered hundreds of change agents together. I volunteered at CGI's table at this event.

The Center for Global Initiatives is a unique organization that assists in incubating and helping to generate health-related developments in needy areas around the globe. Importantly, this organization does not attempt to launch such programs on its own, but rather works in partnership with local health care professionals to create self-sustaining enteprises. It's reach is broad, and its impact is significant

In many ways, from supporting already well established projects - e.g Bolivia - to relatively new ventures - e.g Benin.

The main goal of the Center for Global Initiatives is to ameliorate inequalities in human rights and health care around the world. The center develops sustainable projects specific to communities in need around the world. The programs are developed with the advice and input of local advocates in each region; this ensures that CGI is meeting the exact needs of the people while working with their local customs and traditions. This increases local support and makes their projects more likely to succeed. CGI is willing to attempt to solve any problem- from supplying school supplies to children to bringing needed medical supplies to hospitals. Outside of the projects that they develop and run, they act as a hub for organizations around the world, linking communities in need with organizations that can provide the needed relief. This organization is truly outstanding.

As a future physician and someone who loves to travel, CGI allowed me to learn about countries from a new perspective. It was fascinating to learn how different societies view the role of a doctor and to see how different societies interpret illnesses and treatments. Working for CGI educated me about some of the major health care issues facing people all around the world. My experience at CGI helped confirm that I would like to participate in a foreign medical volunteer programs in the future.

It would be great to have more updates and online videos from each of their projects so that it is easier for people to track the growth and success of their projects.
