CILS Benefactors Inc.
July 8, 2009

My internship, set up through CILS Benefactors, was amazing! I worked with an environmental-NGO in Patna, India, and couldn't have had a better experience. I not only gained a new perspective on non-profit work, but I was able to make contacts with government officials and people who work with the United Nations. I never would have found "Tarumitra" without CILS.

The Great!

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

my International business transactions class. Also, in interviews, it's a great conversation piece.

Ways to make it better...

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

not change a thing.

More feedback

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

that I've kept in touch with my "family" in India.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very devoted to environmentalism, and very creative in their work.

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

have a huge influence in India.

Ways to make it better...

I had worked closer with lawyers. The time I was able to spend with lawyers was helpful.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the way the government functions, but that is true anywhere. Working in a developing country was helpful because there are many of the same problems as in the US, just on an exaggerated scale- so the issues were more obvious.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this was a great experience!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
