Working hard to protect those unable to protect themselves, Survival International is a fantastic organisation that endeavours to defend the dignity and the livelihoods of indigenous people around the world. Choosing to maintain their integrity by the refusal of donations from corporations and governments, Survival relies on the goodwill of the public and the hard work of its staff to ensure what may be the very survival of various tribes and communities. Working with Survival this summer in their San Francisco office was a great experience, giving me an insight into the realities of sharing Survival's message as well as managing the reactions of various journalists and networks across the US. It was also great to work in an environment where people truly cared for the cause and where you feel like your work really made a difference in some way. If you're looking for an opportunity to work with an organisation that makes a real difference, challenges you and really makes you feel welcome, then look no further.
