Although I don't know a ton about sustainable development, I have come to know more about the movement through family members' involvement in the industry. Although green is good at this point for the general populous, the majority of us have no clue how to really make a difference and positively impact the lives of the less fortunate worldwide. The main reason I really like FSD is that they take all their initiatives right to the communities they work in and look directly the the community members they are trying to support to get proactive themselves and work with FSD on an on-going basis to have a direct impact on changing their daily lives for the better. I also like that FSD uses a multifaceted approach to sustainable development, and by blending microfinance, health, environment, education, and human rights initiatives and education they are able to offer comprehensive change that can profoundly improve our world.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
kind, energetic, and very engaged and committed to really making a difference and helping people, both locally and globally!
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
MY ROLE:General Member of the Public & I helped with Work Day LA, and planted trees and painted a shelter in an underprivileged community.
