I went to WN as a health student in college about 5 years ago. The half hour I spent there was so impactful in a way I could never have imagined. That visit inspired me to choose international health as a focus for my studies. I became a volunteer then and have supported WN ever since. The way they empower a community is so beautiful. They never come into a priority population and just start giving them things to make life easier. WN TEACHES, they INSPIRE and they help GROW a community. They are innovators in health practices. They have a health indicator wrist marker that Mom's can use to measure there childs nutrition health. The "clean birth kit" is simple, so simple it works! Terrace farming is something that enables communities to have food security and sustainability. I am so proud to be a WN volunteer and hope that there work is recognized to a greater extent.

We had the opportunity to have a cross generational tour of the work world neighbors did in Honduras. We toured World Neighbor farms and communities that were thriving and them visited communities funded by the government that were hurting. The difference in self esteem and independence was amazing. We also met a young peace corp worker who volunteered with World Neighbors because "they are making a difference and we aren't ". Wow! That says it all to me.

As a Junior at OBU, I decided to conduct a research project over World Neighbors as part of my International Justice course. I was highly impressed by the organization and, after graduation, I had the great opportunity to serve as a Marketing and Communications intern with World Neighbors US based staff in OKC. This opportunity not only gave me invaluable personal and professional growth, but also allowed me a closer look at an amazing non-profit that is producing life-changing results. The US staff is passionate about what they do, and welcomed me as a valuable member of their team. What an amazing team to be a part of! World Neighbors provides concrete ways to provide lasting solutions to hunger, poverty, and disease, and to promote a healthy environment. They preserve the dignity of individuals in communities they serve by finding integrated approaches to the major issues developing communities face. Their mission is to inspire people and strengthen communities. My brief time with World Neighbors inspired me to live a life that fosters change and to continue to support organizations that do just that!

World Neighbors is not only a fantastic organization, but is equipped with an excellent staff and volunteer network who are all passionate and hard-working. I was fortunate enough to volunteer at one of their annual fundraising events this year and was amazed at the turn-out. World Neighbors is such a well-run non-profit and I am always happy to help them out!

Review from Guidestar

One day I visited a community farmer training center near Tegucigalpa in Honduras. I stood on the hillside with three young farmers in their mid 20s. They had come because family members suggested it would be a way for them to earn their own livelihood in a way not understood by their fathers ands grandfathers. For Hosea, Julian, and Pedro it was a way out of the past. They were the poorest of the poor and many of their friends had joined the army. Those three guys now have families of their own though I have long since lost track of them. Yet I learned something that I will never forget. World Neighbors trainers have taught me that it is here among the poorest of the poor that the opportunity for improvement is the greatest and where we can be a catalyst for change that comes from within the heart. Pedro said to me one evening, please don't leave me. And we didn't for almost six years, on his own land with corn and bean production exceeding 400% greater than his ancestors.

With the 60th anniversary this year, I'd go back to some of the program areas like southern India, Nepal, Guatemala, Burkina, where we have worked for years. I'd make several teams and interview 2000 people during the year to find out if what they learned in their training made a difference. How do community members measure change? Much of what we share with communities entails behavior change, did it work and how do they know it did?

Susan Chambers introduced me to World Neighbors several years ago. The work that the staff and volunteers do have improved so many lives. What is most amazing is that money is key but not the most important in this organization. The hands on efforts of so many volunteers to go to needy countries and help with medical needs, farming and just understanding a different way of life is very heart felt.

The Great!
