Blacksmith Institute, Inc.
November 16, 2012

Blacksmith is a very great nonprofit with a clear, well focused and necessary mission of helping and bringing attention to children and people in developing countries fight pollution to improve their healths. Coming from a developing country myself in South America (Lima, Peru), I have seen first hand the struggles of many of these poverty stricken people who are left to fend for themselves with no avail in many cases to fight pollution. In many instances, they have no alternative because the source of pollution is their only source of income. I have not seen or heard of any other nonprofit that does this kind of work, that links environmental consequences to health. I think that many people still do not consider how important the link between environmental pollution and human health is and this nonprofit does exactly that, show the links and try to bring a solution to both parties. I have volunteered at this nonprofit and I'm glad to see that their staff is very dedicated, knowledgeable and believe firmly in this cause which is something I have seen lacking in other nonprofits and companies alike. They do strive to make a difference and do not get discouraged when things get tough.
