Review for SURVIVAL INTERNATIONAL USA, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked for Survival International USA for three years and can say with certainty that you won't find a leaner non-profit out there. Despite operating on a small budget, Survival has an extraordinary impact on the lives of tribal peoples everywhere, bringing their struggles to worldwide attention and advocating for their human rights to remain on their ancestral lands and live as they choose to. Perhaps the greatest testament of all to Survival's positive work comes from a tribal leader himself: Davi Yanomami of Brazil's Yanomami people has said that without Survival, his people, quite simply, would no longer exist.
