Review for Community Empowerment Network, Ferndale, WA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I am a former board member (2006-2010) and volunteer of CEN. In 2007 I visited the communities in the Brazilian Amazon where CEN works. I believe that CEN’s emphasis on self-reliance is critical for these communities to break out of poverty. I am excited to see the evolution of CEN’s PRATICAR methodology which empowers community members to take on self-directed projects.
I also feel that I grew tremendously as a person and as a professional in the development field through my involvement with CEN. Since CEN is a fairly small organization, I always felt like I mattered, and that I was highly valued as a member of a team.
