My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Blacksmith Institute, Inc., New York, NY, USA
This highly effective group helps to address the sadly overlooked problem of life threatening pollution in the developing world. This is a problem on the same scale as other, far better known concerns - malaria, AIDS, and others - but receives only a fraction of the resources. It is also a problem that disproportionately effects those least in a position to help themselves - children and the poor in particular. Leveraging donor dollars with expert volunteers, development bank and national funds, and use of local labor, this group delivers an impressive return on contributions in terms of bettering lives. Further, Blacksmith solutions not only clean up existing sites, but also seek longer term solutions to the economic conditions with drove the actions causing the pollution in the first place. This is an organization I'm proud to be associated with.
