Review for Foundation for Sustainable Development, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Foundation for Sustainable Development inspires me everyday because of the way they are able to work with community-based organizations to implement sustainable, long-term projects. Though the projects are short-term, the very nature of their programs provide incentive within the community to stay involved with their work. That is the definition sustainable development in my mind.

Review for Foundation for Sustainable Development, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the opportunity to travel to many different countries studying and working in sustainable development. I have found that often the key to successful sustainable development is finding the links between different sectors of society and strengthening those relationships. Everyday I went into work for FSD, I heard a different story about the work FSD does in the field that inspired me and clearly demonstrated their mission to incorporate various development subjects into specific and tangible goals that really do improve the lives of many in the communities they work in. I am continuously inspired by the work they do in women's empowerment. The organizations they partner with have a universal understanding of the problems women face in their community, allowing them to come up with creative solutions that incorporate many different factors, address needs articulated by the women's themselves, provide incentive within the community to participate, and consequently leading to true sustainability and growth.

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

knowing that my work is directly linked to the partner organizations and consequently members of the communities they work in in six different counties around the world.

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

Extremely intelligent, well-travelled, kind, motivated and passionate.

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

end global climate change, end hunger, stop AIDs...the list goes on and on.
