My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Izilwane--Voices for Biodiversity, El Prado, NM, USA
It is an organization based on a unique vision for protecting the planet's ecosystem. The talents and enthusiasm of the people involved with running the project give it a dynamism that is impressive. And the range of people excited by the concept, as evidenced by the followers on Facebook and the Izilwane website, is encouraging at such an early stage in the organization's development. This is an important idea backed by innovative ideas and innovative thinkers.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
being part of a dynamic new vision and working with dedicated, creative people.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
young, excited, dedicated, talented and creative.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
change the world – by getting more humans to see themselves as another species of animal, rather than as special and above the ecosystem, and then taking that awareness and applying it to direct action for the planet and its animals.
Ways to make it better...
the organization had more financial support so that it could hire full-time admin help. There are opportunities being missed because of not having enough paid staff.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
funding and funding. It has everything else for success: a great idea, dedicated staff and volunteers, creative thinking, strategic planning.
One thing I'd also say is that...
there is no other organization with this message – a message that could take a person's innate caring for animals and make it a powerful motivator to help protect the planet's animals and ecosystem.
