Recently I had the opportunity to visit some of the communities where Miracles in Action works. I was struck by what a difference they've made in thousands of people's lives. They choose their partners and communities very thoughtfully, to have the biggest impact. They also listen closely to community leaders to find their greatest needs -- it's not a one-size-fits-all approach. What an effective way to change the world.

What's impressed me most is about Miracles in Action is the breadth of services they're involved in--from building schools to providing clean water systems, safe stoves and nutrition education. I love that they work with local NGOs and seek sustainable, long-lasting solutions to the problems of rural poverty. And it's all done in the most frugal ways possible, stretching every dollar to provide the greatest impact.

After my first experiment checking out and getting to know the team and their work in Guatemala I felt this was a part of a magical-spiritual experience, it was surprisingly great. To be able to see how this organization and their group of volunteers are managing to get the help from the must generous and big hearted people in the US to the beautiful people in need in this country rich in human resources and so poor economically and educationally speaking. Their programs on education, nutrition and beyond the fair trade are very smart approaches to solutions in every area, always thinking in sustainable programs and looking to the future not only to the challenges of today.
