Review for International Rivers Network Dba International Rivers, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The ideal non-profit aims to empower the underdog- the marginalized, those who have no voice- to fight for their own interests. I have come across few organizations who do this better than IR. Those most affected by dams are those who still depend on rivers for their livelihood, and the insensitive corporate machine gives less credence to their opinions and needs because of their lifestyle. IR ensures that these people are not quietly displaced- the organization gives them a voice and ensures that governments and companies are aware of the global, ardent moral support that they have. I will continue to support IR in any way that I can, and hope that many others follow.

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

Stop the social injustice of large-scale dams.
