In 2008 - 2009, I was warked for WN for 1,5 years, located in West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. During work with this organization I was learnt about the process of social transformation that created by involving local people with full mobilizing local recources, the transformation focused on people and the outcome shown by transformation of people, gradually their livelihood and their environtment going better. In my opinion program approach that develop by this organization is match for remote people in remote area with marginal resources for better live and right.

yes, as one of east nusa tenggara people, i worked with many NGO but, WN's approach is disticntively different with other NGO, WN strong in encourage people to solve the problem by theirself and to be self reliant.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reading about the work they do and how they empower and affect people's lives for the better.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Open more regional offices in the US for more opportunities for others to join in and help
