Review for Project Peanut Butter, Maplewood, MO, USA
I volunteered with Project Peanut Butter from April of 2013 until April of 2014. My experiences with PPB shaped my future career path (I'm now in nursing school) as well as my understanding of my place in the world as a global citizen. PPB offers its volunteers a unique opportunity to prepare supplies and work in village health clinics. Traveling to local health clinics and working with a Malawian staff of nurses, drivers, and community health workers allows volunteers to interact daily with people who understand the reality of malnutrition. Each day the Malawian mothers and their children walk long distances to meet the PPB team. Volunteers can watch the children heal and transform during their RUTF (enriched peanut butter) therapy. There is an incredible sense of resiliency and determination from both the mothers and the children that is truly inspiring. PPB is doing a fantastic job of working with the local community to create life-giving change, which is building a generation of strong leaders. I highly recommend volunteering with and donating to this non-profit.
