International Rivers Network is the leading organization for river protection. They provide support for local activists as well as promoting projects around the world. The organization is an excellent resource for educators, which I am, who are in need of current information to provide to students regarding the crucial problems we are confronting regarding our approach to water and our use of this essential element of life.

The Great!

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

impacting awareness about rivers and actually stopping the building of dams.

Ways to make it better...

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

hand it over to the people who are running it today.

More feedback...

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

the information that it provides.

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

well informed, engaged and very helpful.

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

have an even greater impact on saving rivers around the world.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to get involved with them and maybe one project.

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

funding and finding more ways to get its views out to a broader range of the population.

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

more groups should be like this.

International Rivers is a small organization that is fueled by an incredible amount of passion,expertise and social awareness. IR seeks to truly understand the impacts of dams on people in every region of the world, and dig deeply to understand how dams affect humans by degarding aquatic biodiversity, displacing communities and altering the lifestyles and livelihoods of riverside communities. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and positive and committed to defending the people who are directly impacted by dam development across the globe.

The Great!

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

the International Day of Action for Rivers!

Ways to make it better...

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

want all the employees to travel to the regions in which they work more often.

More feedback...

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

working with such committed, knowledgable people!

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

upbeat, hard-working, intelligent, helpful

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

help support its partners in fighting dam development, especially in the developing world. Staff could directly connect with partners more often...I'm sure the possibilities are endless (more research, more staff)

Ways to make it better...

could know more about how IR's partners abroad in all of the regions responded to IR's work.

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

funding... but also facing up against the power/money behind large-scale international development is a huge task! --serving as a voice for people is no simple task.

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

it would be great to hire international staff on board, too:)
