I'm not sure what the background of 'nonprofitadvisorsgroup' happens to be, but the comments they made would lead me to believe they are a former disgruntled employee.

I have donated money to Mentors International. My wife and I visited many individuals in Guatemala who have been assisted
by Mentors. These humble people of Guatemala are hard working mothers and fathers who want to make a difference in the lives of their children and fellow countrymen. Mentors allows them to get a boost in the form of a microloan. Yes, these people pay interest on the loan and are held responsible to pay the loan back. The fact is that the wonderful people of Guatemala have a 100% repayment record.

Mentors has programs in many 3rd world countries and has had success in all. I don't know where the money for the salaries of the full-time staff come from, but I am certain they deserve what they are paid and I don't think it matters considering the impact being made in the lives of tens of thousands of people in the world. That influence for good will simply grow as the children of those assisted grow up in a better circumstance due to the programs provided by Mentors.

I know the people of Guatemala very well having lived among them for more than a year and a half. These people know how to work and are proud of their country and especially proud of their families. They are willing to work their hands to the bone to help their children get a better start in life than they had. We should all be proud of Mentors and other organizations like it who go out in the world and do good. After all that should be the goal of all mankind, to go out into the world and do good to our fellow men, women and especially children.

God bless Mentors and those who work and serve with them!

A cursory review of this organizations published fiinancials statements show that they are diverting operational expenses to program related expenses to show that more money is spent on programs expenese versus operational expenses. They have at least 5 full time employees for 7 foudations and their operational expenses as per their financial statements were less than US 70,000. How is that possible?

They included in their audits "Notes Receiveable" from partner organizations yet these notes are not asset back nor are they worth even a fraction of the value booked in the audit. This is anohter attempt to hide the true nature of this company which is really to act as a fund raising organisation for the benefit of over-paid staff members.
