I recently returned from a trip with Forward Edge to Oaxaca, Mexico. The trip was absolutely life changing. I was so impressed with the work they are doing in Oaxaca specifically how much programming they can offer to a large amount of families for a small amount of money. Every penny (or peso) is put to good use. The staff in the field (both Mexican nationals and American missionaries) serve with genuine hearts, working for the good of the community from sun up to sun down. The cost of our trip provided not only our room and board, but also provided money to work on a water project including paying local workers to come in and do the work. I love that this ministry supports local community members in bettering their community. I plan to return to Oaxaca with Forward Edge every year, and I am committed to helping them find more child sponsors and raise money to eventually be able to open a school for the students they work with. After being in the field with Forward Edge, I am 100% confident that they are using their money with complete integrity and limiting their overhead in order to put as much money as possible into the field. I recommend them with great enthusiasm.
I worked as a fundraising consultant for FEI. I got to see the behind-the-scenes workings of the organization. FEI is an organization that has so much integrity and care for their donors. I really appreciated working with them. The work they do is amazing and they are responsible stewards of the financial gifts made to them.
