I went with PINCC in 8/08 with absolutely no idea of what i was in for. It was an extrordinary experience and one i will never forget. I went to three major African Countries-Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The people of Africa stay in my mind constantly and feel I have been changed by this experience forever more.

The Great!

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

the training of other health professionals to treat their own people.

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...

is being in culture and meeting people so very different from my own and from me. It taught me humility and it is far better to give then to receive

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

Doctors, Nurses, Nursing assistants, Midwives

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

Treat far more women!!

Ways to make it better...

If there had been more organization at the other end

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

Having the people show up at the other end ready to be trained.

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

Dr. Taylor and Dr Sax are tireless, loving and giving people! They are truly amazing in the amount of training, patience and time they have to give.

I have worked for a number of non-profit organizations around the globe over the last 5 years as Registered Nurse in the developing world. Working with Dr. Kay Taylor and PINCC was the most rewarding experience I have ever participated in. PINCC not only provides a valuable service to women without access to health care, they are also training Dr.s and nurses to carry on the work in their absence. This is what all non-profits should be doing but which, sadly, many do not.

I've been taking teams of volunteer doctors, nurses, and lay people to 8 countries in Central America and Africa for 3 years, to train and equip medical people who serve poor and high risk women in methods to prevent cervical cancer. It's the #1 cause of cancer death in 3rd world countries among women, and yet it's preventable! We've trained over 50 medical people this year alone. Our methods are low-cost and low-tech, so can be used in low resource settings. It's been very successful, and terrifically rewarding to save the lives of these women, and know the people we train will go on saving lives for many years to come.

The Great!

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

Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda

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

The endless enthusiasm of our great volunteers, who work so hard and pay their own way to help other less fortunate women .

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

Young, old, medical and non-medical people, without hierarchy issues or expectations of being taken care of. Everyone pitched in and did their best, and helped each other out.

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

Go to so many other countries, and reach so many women, and save SO many lives. It really leaves behind sustainable programs that keep working.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
