Review for Sustainable Harvest International, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

SHI was established by former Peace Corp Volunteer Florence Reed in 1997 to serve farmers in four countries of Central America in learning sustainable farming techniques and has become so much more than that. Grown from Flo's deeply held values SHI allows poor farmers to take responsibility for reversing environmental degradation and achieving economic viability within their own countries. The most amazing thing is that after 16 years this organization is thriving with 60 percent of its support coming from individuals who believe in the mission and want to ensure its capacity to work with farmers and communities. More amazing is that this tiny organization returns 83 percent of its $1.6 million budget to programs that serve 4 affiliate offices in 4 countries and thousands of men, women, and children. I love this organization and it's no wonder that Ms. Reed has been named to the Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows Program and received the 2012 Sargent Shriver Award for Distinguished Humanitarian Service from the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA).
