My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Child Family Health International, San Francisco, CA, USA
I have been a participant of CFHI and am now one of their program guideÃ‚Â´s in Oaxaca, Mexico. I am very impressed with all aspects of the organization as they are significantly improving the care of underserved communities in various manners, economically and healthcare to name a few. In addition to serving these communities, students are getting a great deal of clinical experience, learning the host language, broading their horizons by being in a foreign environment, and learning about different healthcare systems. All in all, CFHI provides a very enriching experience for its students and focusses on improving the quality of health care for communities that need it.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
become part of a completely different community and enjoying it to the extent of feeling at home here. I have become close to the coordinators, medical professionals and several locals and feel as though I could come back and have a home here whenever I would like. The community is very friendly and welcoming and if you are proactive with them, you will get a lot in return, as I did.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
enthusiastic, patient, loving and really made us feel comfortable in their country.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
expand its program sights to more countries, as there are hundreds of those in need and would love to have an organization like CFHI help out
Ways to make it better...
when I was a student of CFHI, I would have liked more public health experience or working in an area of psychology. Now that I am a guide, I know there are options available to participate in such clinics, however I was unaware of them at the time.
