Review for Rain for the Sahel and Sahara (RAIN), Portsmouth, NH, USA
My wife, Jennifer, and I have had the pleasure of knowing Bess and following the evolution of RAIN since her first visit to Niger about ten years ago. Bess is truly devoted to finding effective, grassroots solutions to challenges affecting vulnerable populations in Niger. From the very beginning, she and her team have always been conscious of being good stewards of scarce donor funds, doing her best to minimize unnecessary overhead and make every dollar possible reach those who need it most. She and her team are also quite conscientious in trying to ensure that approaches are developed in a participatory fashion so that they empower rural populations while ensuring that they respond to real needs.
