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

Rating: 5 stars  

FSD is a wonderful organization that provides internship opportunities in developing countries. In-country staff, Peter, is extremely supportive and understanding. You are encouraged to make a difference while learning and growing in understanding of the people and place where you are living. FSD has been integral in supporting grassroots efforts by their volunteers to create a better world.

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

their continuing efforts to empower community based organizations in developing countries to lead and create change in their own communities.

Ways to make it better...

I had learned basic Swahili before going to Kenya.
