ODIM graciously hosted a team of graduate students that I volunteered with in Guatemala in 2012. ODIM is an outstanding organization that places the health, autonomy and respect for the local community they serve above all else. ODIM does a great job of building capacity among local community members in a way that fosters growth and independence in the community. I cannot say enough what a valuable experience my volunteer work with ODIM was and I strongly encourage others who wish to become involved to learn more about ODIM's great work and consider how they might be able to contribute.

The survivor-led non-profit works tirelessly to provide a safe haven for women and their families. Their work is nothing short of life-changing and their client-first, empowerment approach to both case management and other services they provide makes a huge difference in the lives of the families they serve as well as in the entire community. Their teen dating violence program is especially influential as it is hugely important in terms of ending the cycle of violence and providing youth with the knowledge and tools to form healthy relationships based on equality and shared power. I have no doubt that the 18,000+ women and children the organization serves each year would agree that PADV provides life-saving and life-altering interventions that are absolutely essential to our communities.
