My experience as an intern at the Sexto Sol Centre in 2006 was life-changing. I was amazed by the dedication of the staff and the tangible results achieved on the ground - from improving food security by teaching permaculture, to improving livelihoods by helping coffee farmers obtain fair trade certification to treating hurricane victims for post traumatic stress disorder with auricular acupuncture- each project that they undertake is developed based on the needs of the communities they serve. I feel that the work they do really has an impact on the people of the Sierra Madre in Chiapas as well as the repatriated refugees in Guatemala. It is very rare to see a small NGO produce such a large impact - and this is possible due to the dedication and patience of their staff. Since my time there i have continued to keep in touch with the Dr Brennan, and I am constantly amazed by how they are able to achieve so much with very limited resources.

I visited the Sexto Sol Center and found that the staff are totally dedicated to their work. This work includes helping refugees get resettled, teaching sustainable agriculture methods and nutrition, working with parents and schools, and training rural health workers. What really struck me was the flexibility of the programs Sexto Sol creates. They respond to whatever needs present, working to help local people overcome poverty and alienation. I would have been a volunteer if I had been able to stay longer. There is no waste or poor spending at the Sexto Sol Center, and the staff are not self-indulgent. All money goes to the programs they run.
