Review for Women's World Health Initiative, Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer with WWHI for over two years. I clearly remember our first meeting. In a crowd of roughly a dozen people I felt as if we had the power of hundreds. The group was diverse but I left with a feeling of awe for the passion, compassion, and careful attention to principles that was displayed by the group. Last week I returned from our trip to Senegal with that same feeling of awe at the skill and understanding of the volunteers, the strength of our organization and immense gratitude for the people in Senegal with whom we are collaborating.

We have partners who are methodical and careful.
We have recipients who are grateful and not just expecting a handout.
We have programs that are sustainable and targeted to the specific need of the community.
We have volunteers who are knowledgable in their fields and who are culturally sensitive and careful to support and empower the recipients not take over.

Role:  Volunteer & I have worked with the development committee and now with the programming committee, traveling to Senegal to verify community/stakeholder buy-in.
