International Development Exchange (IDEX)
October 8, 2013

I recently became more involved with IDEX after moving to the Bay Area earlier this year and have been continually impressed with the organization's passion, commitment to its mission of social justice, and especially its dedicated staff and volunteers. IDEX consistently provides great events and opportunities for those in the local community to become involved in international development issues while continuing to do fantastic work supporting grassroots organizations throughout the Global South. I am honored to be a volunteer for this brilliant organization and help to spread its impact both here and abroad!

Limitless Horizons Ixil, Inc.
September 30, 2011

I have been working in Chajul alongside Limitless Horizons Ixil as the Community Advocate for Philanthropiece for the past year and am continually impressed by the leadership, activism, and, most importantly, compassion that this organization brings to all of the projects and programs that they have thus far initiated in the community. For the last several years, LHI has been able to garner the trust of the community and, in turn, provide a wide range of needed services to a very under-served population. Both the local and international staff are a pleasure to work with and, even though my time in Chajul is almost up, I am really looking forward to keeping in contact and seeing the LHI scholarship students, and LHI itself, continue to grow and succeed in the future!

The Great!

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

so many ways! I've been working in Chajul for a year and have been involved in a lot of the projects that LHI has started - sustainable agriculture, introducing safe cookstoves to the community, helping out with Chajul's first and only public library, assisting with the amazing scholarship program, handling the artisan program with local women weavers, and looking for new opportunities for Philanthropiece to work alongside LHI in community identified initiatives.

This organization works in an area of Guatemala that is very underserved within a very unique, beautiful culture. It grassroots in the truest sense of the word, working within the community and making sure that community identified needs are met and voices are heard.
