As an new intern for FSD I am amazed by the organization and efficiency of the non-profit. The interns are all great people with very interesting backgrounds and the FSD staff is top-notch. I've had exposure to numerous non-profits and FSD easily takes the cake for its vision and quality contribution to sustainable development, particularly in the space of promoting a more green planet.

I first came across FSD while doing research for a paper in a developmental economics class. What really impressed me about FSD was their ground up approach and holistic outlook. I've continued to follow their progress and even considered going abroad with their program. While I eventually decided it was not the right time for me to leave my current job, as someone who did quite a bit research, I recommend their program above most of the others I looked into.

Although I don't know a ton about sustainable development, I have come to know more about the movement through family members' involvement in the industry. Although green is good at this point for the general populous, the majority of us have no clue how to really make a difference and positively impact the lives of the less fortunate worldwide. The main reason I really like FSD is that they take all their initiatives right to the communities they work in and look directly the the community members they are trying to support to get proactive themselves and work with FSD on an on-going basis to have a direct impact on changing their daily lives for the better. I also like that FSD uses a multifaceted approach to sustainable development, and by blending microfinance, health, environment, education, and human rights initiatives and education they are able to offer comprehensive change that can profoundly improve our world.

By partnering with locals in the areas they service to find out what the high priority needs are FSD affects environmental practices in the most sustainable way - the way people will actually use. Other methods and groups mught be more sustainable per project by partnering and knowing what works on the ground and in the field means FSD projects have a better chance of uptake by local populations. Something can be 100% green and 100% sustainable in theory but 0% in practice if no one adopts it or uses it. FSD should be winning this award for using methods that work in the field.

The Great!

As an intern at FSD's San Francisco office, I have been privileged to see a broad range of what it is that FSD does. As of late I was going through different projects that previous interns have contributed to a wide variety of partner community-based organizations. It was so inspiring to to see all the ways in which each part was making a difference no matter how big or small; and each one of those tied into the bigger picture of creating a sustainable development model.
