THE POWER OF 1 INTL INC
May 17, 2011

I worked with The Power of 1, Intl., in 2009. I was a volunteer in a state run orphanage located in downtown San Luis. This was the experience of a lifetime. I really enjoyed the time that I spent with my host family and no doubt I would do it again. The staff is great and they jump at the opportunity to help you in whatever you need.

The Great!

broaden my grants opportunities. Their budget is too limited to make any significant changes. They are just starting so hopefully they are able to better channel their focus.
