I went on several work trips with this organization years ago to help them help the very poor in Honduras. The difference which this made from year to year was impressive. They work to provide nutrition and health assistance and training for those who have almost nothing. They do wonderful work by empowering the poor to improve themselves. I cannot say enough for how they managed to get the locals to take ownership of the efforts and gave them decision making authority while ensuring that funds are spent in a manner which has maximum positive impact.
Since that time I have become good friends with those who run the U.S. office for this organization and have donated money as well.
