Review for Roots and Wings International, Spokane, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Roots & Wings International ("RWI") is a testament to local leaders and youth who have fully taken the reins of development in their own communities by promoting elementary through university education. The organization has grown thanks to the initiative of local leadership and a global team of volunteers and donors who offer time, skills, and resources to promote RWI's mission of changing lives through education.

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

witnessing the dramatic change in perspective of children growing up in extreme poverty. The children we work with now have dozens of examples of older sisters and brothers who are pursuing university level education for the first time, and are breaking the cycle of poverty by becoming the first generation to work as professionals in their own communities.

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

continue growing the development team to secure more funding and expand the great work that the organization does.

Role:  Board Member & I have worked with RWI beneficiary communities over the past 8 years, helping to build the foundation for all of our current education programs.
