Mentors International
July 17, 2013

I'm not sure what the background of 'nonprofitadvisorsgroup' happens to be, but the comments they made would lead me to believe they are a former disgruntled employee.

I have donated money to Mentors International. My wife and I visited many individuals in Guatemala who have been assisted by Mentors. These humble people of Guatemala are hard working mothers and fathers who want to make a difference in the lives of their children and fellow countrymen. Mentors allows them to get a boost in the form of a microloan. Yes, these people pay interest on the loan and are held responsible to pay the loan back. The fact is that the wonderful people of Guatemala have a 100% repayment record.

Mentors has programs in many 3rd world countries and has had success in all. I don't know where the money for the salaries of the full-time staff come from, but I am certain they deserve what they are paid and I don't think it matters considering the impact being made in the lives of tens of thousands of people in the world. That influence for good will simply grow as the children of those assisted grow up in a better circumstance due to the programs provided by Mentors.

I know the people of Guatemala very well having lived among them for more than a year and a half. These people know how to work and are proud of their country and especially proud of their families. They are willing to work their hands to the bone to help their children get a better start in life than they had. We should all be proud of Mentors and other organizations like it who go out in the world and do good. After all that should be the goal of all mankind, to go out into the world and do good to our fellow men, women and especially children.

God bless Mentors and those who work and serve with them!
