Review for Public-Private Alliance Foundation, Hastings on Hudson, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been involved with PPAF for what is now almost 10 years! Absolutely amazing, hard-working non-profit, directed by David and Jeanne Stillman, along with a great PPAF board and team of volunteers, associates, fellows and interns from all disciplines and diverse backgrounds. They are involved at the UN level in terms of practicing sustainability and policy issues with the goal of alleviating poverty. I have witnessed the organization's fervent efforts in many a cause as well as the facilitation, attendance and involvement in countless conferences and workshops with goals of promoting sustainable development. As an intern and later Associate myself I was involved in one of the Partners Against Poverty Conferences held in the Dominican Republic which focused on International Bio-energy discourse bringing government leaders from the DR and abroad, as well as people from public and private sectors to discuss the path ahead (picture below). Soon after I was proud to witness the inception of the critical need and advocacy of the clean cookstoves project and initiative taken by PPAF. One which has grown to supply many people in Haiti and abroad with clean cooking and viable alternative in the face of massive deforestation in a place such as Haiti. They are a lively, friendly, group that also seeks to educate their team of associates, peers, and the general community on the who, what, where why and how's on a sustainable future. I am also really glad to call them my friends!

Review for Public-Private Alliance Foundation, Hastings on Hudson, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the pleasure of being involved with the Public-Private Alliance Foundation in the Spring of 2009 and I have been with them ever since ! I first started as an intern then transitioned into an Associate role. The work and passion that David and Ginger (along with other volunteers, interns and board members) is remarkable. I was fortunate to be involved in various initiatives of the non-profit organization, PPAF such as: Spanish to English translator (and vice versa) as well as my most notable role, Conference Coordinator for their 2009 Bio Energy Conference in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. PPAF has many partnerships that they have created and reinforced in order to promote various social causes. They aim to make improvements for others in impoverished regions by bridging the gap between public and private sectors in order to create much needed changes. I advise everyone to look into their many initiatives, a current one being their; Global Cookstoves project which originated in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. The world is a good place having David and Ginger making important strides through their humane and humble acts carried out through PPAF.
