The outstanding qualities of love for the poor, frugality, good financial management and the results they have attained with very limited funds helping people rise above poverty are reasons we have financially supported the Sexto Sol Center for Community Action for 10 years. They lead relief efforts when mud slides destroyed a village. They teach coffee growers how to improve quality and production and help them get fair prices for their coffee. They teach methods to increase vegetable yields in home gardens. They developed an improved lighting system for a school. They teach care and protection of the environment. Through innovation and dedication they are able to meet needs and improve the lives of the poor near the Mexican / Guatemala border. I recommend Sexto Sol Center to all.

Tamara is the paragon of dedication, passion, and vision. She is there on the ground, doing incredible grassroots work in so many vital areas for the communities and the environment. Sexto Sol's work is also grassroots, helping create sustainable and holistic change so that those they serve may move forward into healthier, happier, more empowered futures. Truly, I am inspired by the work this organization does.

My wife and I have known and supported Sexto Sol for many years. We keep being amazed at the wide range of projects and the excellent work they have done, all accomplished on a tiny budget. Director Tamara Brennan and her husband put their heart and soul into this work, and it pays off in the many successes of this organization. Would that other NGO's could be so effective!

I have followed and supported Sexto Sol Center for Community Action for many years. They stand in the breach for the poor farmers of the area, responding to needs as they present themselves; Providing food and medical supplies to isolated victims after the mudslides following deforestation; bringing in medical and psychological experts to help deal with trauma after the devastation of the area; helping coffee farmers get certified as organic farmers,' providing colorful new furniture for local schools: creating a new inexpensive lighting system for dark school classrooms, teaching elementary students when local schools proved inadeuate. The staff is creative, innovativve, dedicated and desperately needed in the area they serve. They're a top notch organization and very deserving of your stap of approval
