Geographic areas served: Asia, Africa, Latin America and Haiti

Programs: Program service accomplishments include international programs, public education, overseas program services, program familiarization- see attached statements of program accomplishments. Our ratio for program/administrative expenses is approximately 81%. There are a number of realities that lead world neighbors to this program/administrative ratio; 1)we rely on numerous small, individual donors and foundations for our financial support and require more time by staff to support these relationships. This reality has allowed us to develop our unique and highly successful program methodology that is not driven by any one person's or organization's agenda. 2) our program is delivered by thousands of community volunteers who carry out projects for themselves. These efforts are not reflected in dollars, thus keeping our program costs low. We also do not construct buildings or provide other equipment or facilities-costs that typically boost program costs to higher levels.

World Neighbors and WOW are great examples of people helping people. I was introduced to the organization through a former classmate, and it strikes me as a very genuinely caring, giving group of people. I am always inspired when I read up on what World Neighbors and WOW are up to. - inspired to open my eyes to the world around me, and how its inhabitants live.
