My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Empowerment International Inc, Boulder, CO, USA
As someone who has previously managed a non-profit in South America, and volunteered and worked for one in Asia, I feel qualified to form an opinion on the work of Empowerment International in Granada - and that opinion is all good! I was truly impressed by the success of their programmes.
The key to their success, I believe, is their close involvement in the barrios where their children live, and their personal and supportive connections with the families of those children.
I volunteered for a week recently, mentoring the young adults in their photography programme. This programme is a prime example of EI's success. What started as a fun, learning activity for the kids has turned into a profitable business, with the kids even developing the business plan for the gallery they now operate where they sell their fine photographic work.
I am a sincere supporter of EI and plan on going back to visit again as soon as I can.
