My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Partners for Development, Silver Spring, MD, USA
As a former intern, I had the privilege of working with Partners for Development (PfD). The dedication of the staff in improving the lives of the local communities on a global scale is remarkable. My time there has taught me important experiences in the realm of business development and program communication. Gaining valuable insights from the headquarter office gave me much appreciation on the amount of effort it takes to implement projects in the field on a grassroots level. It also strengthened my perspective on the importance of collaborative work to help others who are less fortunate. As a graduate student, PfD was extremely accommodating and flexible with my schedule. Most importantly, I felt like part of a team where my contributions were valued. Not only was I able to utilize my international experience and background in global health, there were plenty of opportunities to learn and integrate my interests with the assigned work. Its leadership and management team strive for transparency, partnerships, open to ideas, and they welcome feedback; for me, this is a trademark of a trustworthy not-for-profit organization. PfD is like a hidden gem in the sand. To discover for yourself, learn more at www.pfd.org.
