As a volunteer for Friends of the WFP, I was priveledged enough to go to Nicaragua as a guest of the United Nations World Food Program, in July 2008. It was an amazing experience and even more amazing was how the WFP manage the logistics of feeding so many people so efficiently. We visited school feeding programs where the children get a hot meal every day at school. For many of these children, it is the only meal they each day. The WFP manage to feed these children with only 25c per meal. The WFP staff on the ground are from the region and know best what the needs of the people are. The operations are simple, effective and efficient! This is an organization that I completely respect and admire and happily trust that they will do the very best with all funds donated to them.

The Great!

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

Mother and Child Health Programs, School Feeding Programs and Food for Work Programs in Nicaragua.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I enjoy the well organised simplicity of this organization. They certainly are a superior logistics organization striving to end Global Hunger.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

local staff who knew the needs of the people they were servicing. The staff also had tremendous empathy and listened to the needs of their beneficiaries.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Feed 1,000,000 children at school in a developing country, for the whole school year.

Ways to make it better...

My experience could not have been better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

shortage of sufficient donations to end hunger.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Feeding children at school in countries where hunger is a problem, symbolizes hope to me. I see education and nourishment as the only way to end the continual cycle of poverty for all children of our generation. $50 per year can achieve this one child at a time!

This non-profit organization is made up of only about 15 employees in Washington, DC. However, their efforts help mobilize people all across the United States to volunteer and provide support to the World Food Program. Friends of WFP is also one of the largest donors to the World Food Program, providing millions of dollars each year to go to programs in the field to help the hungry poor.

The Great!

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

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

93 cents out of every dollar donated goes directly to the field. This means they spend only a minimum amount on overhead and almost all money donated goes directly into the mouths of hungry children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The Friends of WFP staff is friendly, hard-working and entirely dedicated to their cause!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

If this organization had 10 million bucks it could feed 200,000 students in school for a year. It takes only $50 to feed a schoolchild one hot meal in school for a year!
