Community Empowerment Network
June 2, 2012

When volunteering, I look for organizations that make a real difference and encourage growth, self-reliance. The Community Empowerment Network is still small, but the impact they have on adopted communities is lasting. Their volunteer efforts do more than just throw money at problems; this is an organization that understands the difference between creating dependence and helping communities grow into successful groups with the power to control the community destiny. Nearly every cent of every dollar directly benefits the projects and only one person in the entire organization receives a salary. That person is on the ground in Brazil and uses their modest salary to implement CEN projects full-time. That contact person devotes his time assisting the communities that would otherwise be lost in time, overrun by the modern expansion nearby. If you want to make a difference and know that someone’s life is better when they come in contact with your organization, I highly recommend the Community Empowerment Network whether you are volunteering locally in the Puget Sound area, virtually on your computer at home, or simply offering CEN activities fiscal support.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

That distance did not mean I was helpless. That my little part could contribute to the greater good and our community partners were benefiting in a self-sustainable manner so they would not be dependent on others for their own successes.
