I became aware of Mentors International about 14 years ago. At that time I had personally experienced the opportunities that come when kind-hearted, hard-working, and generous people provide a chance for other hard-working people to self sustain--and beyond. With gratitude in my heart for my benefactors, I began supporting Mentors. Over the years I have come to appreciate the way Mentors efficiently matches kind-hearted donors with the hard-working poor to develop the dignity that results from self reliance. Only the most compelling purposes on earth have held my attention for this long. If you desire the feelings that well up inside when one helps the poor and needy help themselves, you might seriously consider Mentors International.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Further perfect the methods by which they help the world's poor self sustain. I would do this by recruiting kind-hearted people with the talent to perfect the methods. The nearly self-sustaining nature of the model and the deep feelings of charity towards fellow men will likely attract the needed monetary resource to impact more people.
