Review for Alliance For International Reforestation, Inc., Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Although this was my fist volunteer experience with an organization outside of the United States, I was pleasantly surprised at how hassle-free our whole experience was. The AIRS staff run an extremely efficient operation, and it is amazing how much is actually accomplished with minimal staff. They are a committed, dedicated and enthusiastic bunch, and their commitment to the important goals of AIRS is quite obvious. In less than a week, our small volunteer group was able to plant over 2000 trees and build 3 stoves, thanks to the planning and organization of the AIRS staff, and the hard work of volunteers, staff and people in the local villages. And, since the AIRS staff continues to work and follow up long after volunteers leave, the work we did will have a true lasting impact. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to participate in such important work!
