My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Self Reliance Promoters' NGO, Kumbo, , Cameroon
When I first decided to become a volunteer I knew that finding the appropriate organisation would play a key role in my overall experience, because it had to be one that kept me happy for a whole year. I was extremely lucky to have found SEREP, in the charming town of Kumbo, with a group of people who received me as a member of their own family. I was made to feel completely at home.
Working for a small NGO has the advantage that it offers the opportunity to explore the many different aspects of its operation, gives you the freedom to act with few constraints, there is always lots to become involved with, and you get to see the result of your efforts first hand. SEREP truly makes a positive impact within the community. Its driving force is the Director: an honest, hard working, self motivated man who has forged his own path dedicated to genuinely serve his community, without monetary compensation. His legacy is evidenced by the way in which people stop on the street to greet him fondly and show their respect and appreciation for him. He's an inspiring character.
I've gained much more than I gave back. I'll remain committed to this cause, will maintain my ties with the NGO, and will continue helping with its projects.
