I have seen this organization transform communities in Uganda and help the villagers change their own lives. Empowering others to do what they want to do for themselves. Just awesome!!
I annually review and vet dozens of organizations like 410 Bridge. In the last 4 years in this role, I have only come across one, maybe two, organizations that are as disciplined and focused. 410 Bridge is a top-tier community development organization. They have a highly developed strategy grid through which sound decisions are made. They execute these strategies using an assest-based grid. They holistically engage the communities in which they work to see complete transformation that will last for generations to come.
I was not impressed by the planning and goal setting for my trip. Lacked a clear objective. The trip seemed more about giving the volunteers a "mission trip vacation" than a results based and goal oriented mission. Very arogant approach towards the volunteer's questions and complete disregard to the years of experience and expertise of the volunteers.
