World Neighbors and its WOW (Work of Women) program are amazing. I first learned about World Neighbors in graduate school as a field trip. I was blown away by their focus on serving international populations living in poverty. My passion for World Neighbors stems from how they choose to serve. Rather than sending Americans oversees to "fix" problems, they work with local people to develop culturally appropriate solutions to problems with poverty, child mortality, women's rights, health, etc. They are careful to advocate for change in a manner that does not infringe on culture ... what a group!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing lives of women changed. Birthing kits (that fit inside match boxes) have helped to reduce death rates among women giving birth.
