Review for Service for Peace Inc, Bridgeport, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I think back about life changing events that I have encountered, participating in the Service For Peace Global Peace Makers program in 2009 is on the top of my list. I had the opportunity to help remodel a much needed canteen for an elementary school in the Ivory Coast. While in the Ivory Coast, I met and was inspired by the leadership within the organization and by the willingness of the community to improve their surroundings. The program encouraged self-sufficiency and sustainability past our short time volunteering in the village. I believe this was one of the most beneficial aspects of the Global Peace Makers program. Essentially, we were teaching the community how to fish and not just providing the food. I would recommend working with Service for Peace to anyone. It truly altered the course of my life and for that I am forever indebted to Service for Peace.
