My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Alliance For International Women's Rights, East Chatham, NY, USA
I have been volunteering with the organization for over a year now and have found the experience invaluable. The director, Lisa Herb, puts forth an incredible amount of time, energy, and effort in order to run AIWR and fulfill its mission. The organization is entirely volunteer-based, with so many people, literally from all corners of the Earth, volunteering their time and expertise to working with and for women in Afghanistan (while also gaining so much from their interactions with girls and women in Afghanistan). It is truly remarkable.
Another great quality of the organization is that it is so accessible in terms of volunteering. A volunteer can make an impact in Afghanistan from their own hometown. Every day that I volunteer (my role is to reach out to the organization's volunteers and let them know they are appreciated) I am amazed by the places all these women come from and all of their experiences, that are brought together by other women in Afghanistan. I feel like AIWR is creating a significant network of women around the world that care about other women, women's issues, and are willing to act.
I feel sincerely privileged to help and be a part of an organization that is truly focused on its mission, and is accomplishing so much.
