Review for Institute for Humane Education, Surry, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I admit I am biased because I co-founded this organization, but I did so because I believed it was essential for an organization to address the underlying cause of so many problems in the world: lack of essential education that prepares young people to be excellent researchers, able to identify systemic causes of interconnected local and global challenges, think critically and creatively, and solve problems through collaboration. The Institute for Humane Education (IHE) provides access for educators and advocates for positive change from an award-winning free resource center, graduate programs for the deepest levels of preparation, workshops, and a Solutionary Program for middle and high school students who learn to solve challenges within their school curricula. I believe education is the root system underlying all other systems, and IHE is working to transform this system for the benefit of students and the world they will both inherit and shape.

Review for Food Empowerment Project, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Many groups work on single issues, producing results for one group, but sometimes at the expense of another. FEP bridges social justice issues bringing people the tools for sustainability, healthy, and humane living simultaneously. This is so important! A great organization that helps impoverished and disenfranchised people, empowering them while also ensuring that the environment and animals are protected at the same time.

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

their outreach to the community

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

Make it bigger so it could achieve more!

Role:  Advisor & I advise FEP and donate as well. I think they are tireless and see the big picture.
