4 the world has made me believe that it is possible to change lives through education and therefore provide a promising future to children that would otherwise be left behind. I can't say enough good things about the caring and brilliant volunteers this organization has working for it, to improve the health and welfare in impoverished countries.

4 the World is the best nonprofit with whom I have worked. I traveled to Belize twice with them to work with teachers and give books to children. It was most rewarding. Robert (founder and operator) handled the logistics and put us in touch with those who needed our help, yet we gained so much through the experience.

I traveled to Belize to conduct professional development for teachers in San Ignacio. Robert the man who runs this organization showed us around the western area of Belize and pointed out many of the projects he has undertaken. It is amazing what this one man has put together. He has brought hundreds of volunteers to western Belize and eastern Guatemala to make a difference to those people by building schools, medical clinics, parks and churches. He has provided thousands of pieces of free clothing for the people of Guatemala who are particularly poor, thanks to the help of volunteer groups in the Garner area. He has provided hundreds of books and computers to several schools in the area. Robert has run this organization himself with the help of volunteers because of his love for the people and the need that he saw when he visited the area years ago.

4 The World is an amazing non profit organization created to help the families and school children of Belize and Guatamala. This group has amazing volunteer opportunities to teach students, teachers, build communities, bridges, and provide basic needs for people that are in such need. The founder Robert, gives 110% of his time and energy to this organization and to these families. I was amazed and learned so much through volunteering with this organization.

4 the World listens to communities to see if they would like assistance and if so what kind of support they need. This is important because 4 the World respects people's dignity and respects their autonomy. It is also important because it means that money is not wasted on standardized programs that are not needed in a community. 4 the World takes groups of doctors, teachers, and business leaders to provide care and training to children and to promote gender equity. The practical basic needs as well as social justice are both addressed by 4 the World.
