IR Teams is a very lean operation. Their administrative costs are miniscule for the magnitude of work they do. In fact, they are just plain miniscule. I believe they have a staff of four in their office. I met the CEO at a hotel I was staying at in Ho Chi Minh City. He was there establishing a network of centers to train teachers to train medical technicians in high risk postnatal care. The hotel was a nice local hotel for $60/night, while most Americans are staying at the international hotels for $200/night. This is how the operation is run. There is no fat. This is how the operation functions, very efficiently. I have the utmost confidence that my donations are being used effectively. They get a 4 star rating from Charity Navigator which I use as a guide before doing my own homework. I made one trip with them to Guatemala for a food distribution. They were very effective in making distributions to remote villages that other organizations neglect due to inaccessibility.
