Review for Global Water, Oxnard, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Global Water stands behind its motto of changing the world one "drop" at a time. Although a small NGO, they are long on hard work, enthusiasm and reach, having established numerous local village clean water systems throughout South and Central America largely on their own time, with limited funds and personal, tireless, dedicated efforts.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helped put together their newsletter containing photos showing how welcomed their water projects were to the local population.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add two more engineers with water well drilling experience willing to work in third world countries on a small and personal basis with the local population. Take on part time person to act as a contribution coordinator.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?


Did the organization use your time wisely?

Quite well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Take on a part time contribution coordinator.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Yes, I had no idea there were people in this country willing to go the extra mile in order to bring fresh water to third world country small villages.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?


When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & Assisted in project review, travel, securing donations and other administrative work.
