Foundation for Sustainable Development
July 31, 2013

I worked with FSD last summer for ten weeks in Bolivia in the field of economic development. Overall, my experience was great and I would recommend the organization to other people. Before I left, the San Francisco based staff was amazing in communicating with me about my concerns going abroad. Once I arrived, the local staff was responsive, encouraging, and helped me a lot when I got sick.

I would find a way to make international work with FSD more accessible for low-income students. As it stands with the very high fees (which I agree goes toward maintaining the quality of the organization, hiring great local staff, and creating meaningful partnerships), low-income student or students without huge endowments or scholarships from their schools are unable to participate. If FSD wants to be truly inclusive and sustainable, it should strive to be accessible to all qualified students.
