I moved to Fort Collins in 2008, and soon after I learned about Village Earth. I have experience doing the type of work they promote and so I was very curious to meet them. I did and was impressed by their open mindedness, humility and generosity with respect to grassroots work; specially their honest commitment to bottom-up development or more precisely, empowerment of everyday people who have been violently and unfairly disenfranchised and silenced. I built a closer relation and couldn't be happier when asked to join as a board member because of my experience in Colombia working with a similar organization, Jenzera (jenzera.org). Do check them out, get in their mailing list, and consider donating. I'm only giving it 4 stars because I don't believe anyone should get a perfect score ;)
