Review for Women In Progress Inc, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Prior to my volunteer experience with WIP,I had traveled around the world, but never by myself. Even though I arrived in Ghana by myself, I had instant friends and support with other WIP volunteers and staff. Now, six years later, I still keep in contact with my Ghanaian friends and other WIP volunteers. The organization is wonderful to let you set your own pace for work. Also, I feel that the organization is really making a huge difference in Ghana. I have seen tremendous growth in the last six years as more and more Ghanaians have financially benefited from the work of WIP women, staff and volunteers

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

seeing that my volunteer work actually made a difference to the organization and the women they work with

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

unbelievably friendly and accomodating

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

Make a huge difference in many lives around Africa. It would lead to employment, greater education and better living conditions.

Ways to make it better...

I could have stayed longer. Most people want to stay longer or return.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of external funding and recognition for the wonderful work they have done.

One thing I'd also say is that...

An amazing organization that I am very proud to have been a small part of.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
