SUSTAINABLE HARVEST INTERNATIONAL
April 16, 2012

My name is Terry Gibson. I have been translating quarterly reports from Spanish into English for SHI for about two years now. I discovered SHI on-line while researching for my MBA of Sustainable Business at Marylhurst University in Portland Oregon. The reports that I have received to translate from communities in Panama, Nicaragua, and Honduras have given me a valuable look at the wonderful work SHI is doing in remote locations that have very few options, if any, to earn money to send their children to school, start home-based businesses, and restore the environment using sustainable agricultural practices. The success stories and testimonials that I have translated not only inform me about how critical the SHI mission is to those most in need, but in a model that does not patronize or lock them into destructive globalization strategies. SHI truly helps these communities, sometimes one family at a time, but more often raising the hopes and living standards of entire communities in sustainable ways. SHI gives a hand up, not a hand out. I know of no other organization working in Central America with their track record of success at practical sustainable agriculture.
