Because It is my good fortune to live in Oklahoma City, headquarters of World Neighbors, I have known about this organization since I heard a program at our church about 20 years ago. My husband and I thought the integrated and respectful approach to solving problems that World Neighbors brings to the most deprived villages made so much sense, we were anxious to learn more. The more we learned, the more impressed we became. Following our World Neighbors Journey to Ecuador 5 years ago, we became even stronger advocates. We were able to meet the outstanding field staff, mostly people from the area, and the villagers who told us how much WN had improved their lives. Many women said that without WN their husbands would have needed to go to another country to find work to send home money. But with the help of WN their families now had enough food and healthy living conditions for the family to remain together in their village. We are now looking forward to a World Neighbors Journey to Peru in a few weeks.

In a trip to Ecuador with World Neighbors 5 years ago, we were able to see the successful results of programs: abundant fields, well fed and healthy people, healthy vaccinated livestock, and a democratically functioning communities with many committees making important decisions. We were truly inspired to see how hard the villagers worked to improve their village and their own lives with the guidance of World Neighbors.
