Review for La Gonave Haiti Partners, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Although I'm not a volunteer with La Gonave Haiti Partners, I had the opportunity to visit La Ganove and see the fruits of the collaboration between local residents and their U.S. partners. It's inspiring to see this level of mutual trust and respect. As a donor and someone with international development experience, I'm careful about how U.S. nonprofits insert themselves in global communities, exercise their power, and invest their resources. It was an inspiring experience to witness the extraordinary friendships that have emerged from this fruitful, cooperative partnership and more inspiring to observe the outcomes that have changed many people's lives. Many thanks to the Haitian and U.S. leaders of La Ganove Haiti Partners. You're a model!

Review for Georgia Avenue Community Ministry, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Georgia Avenue Community Ministry and food co-ops are a sign of hope for our Atlanta region. The co-ops are a way for low-income residents to organize themselves into strategic communities which then provide food and care to one another. Through these co-ops, people discover the gifts and beauty in their neighbors, often in people they had discounted. With their vision and hope, with their hard work, with their care for one another, communities are being transformed while people are being fed. -Rev. Dr. David Jenkins, Candler School of Theology, Emory University

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the ways it has inspired students of mine and transformed lives while attending to food security.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help Atlanta foundations, corporations, civic leaders, and local residents discover the great need this is meeting and the number of people it is serving.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I worked with the founder, Chad Hale, to engage seminary students in this vital work so they could learn from the co-op leaders who to develop similar co-ops in other communities and congregations. .
