Partners In Development, Inc.
January 23, 2011
I've been a board member since the mid 90's. The organization has helped 1000's maybe 10,000's of people since that time. To see the partnership between us in the U.S. and the people in Haiti and Guatemala is truly awe inspiring. The provision of education, food, housing, business lending, and medical care are the foundations of our livelihoods. They are not individual accomplishments anywhere, but necessarily require the partnership of individuals in societies everywhere. Reaching out from a distant spot in the world to assist others to forge a sustainable life for themselves and their family where there was once barrenness is one of the most profound connections I will experience in this world. It is God's shedding of his grace on us and them. For me it is the best in our humanity and the essence of our faith and spirituality.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
through the work and reports of other volunteers.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
install procedures and systems that will help this organization continue as personnel changes.
