Review for American Jewish World Service, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I spent summer 2008 in Honduras working with an NGO in the community of Gracias. We worked for seven weeks building a community center. I was impressed with the AJWS's organization of the trip and the curriculum that went along with the program. We were able to learn about the poverty and problems that are causing it as well as how to reduce its impact.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The year long program. Our group was able to make a difference in Honduras, as well as use our power as American citizens to affect change in politics.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

solve world poverty through grassroots change.
