Review for Conservation Through Poverty Alleviation International Inc, Lincoln, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I met Cay Craig while living in Madagascar and became involved with her project on a volunteer consulting basis. I visited the training and research site as well as a number of the participating farm sites. Having worked with other NGOs in developing nations, I was quite impressed with ingenuity of CPALI's methods in combining ecological goals with the critical needs of the village and rural people. Moreover, I heartily applaud the participatory voice of the farmers in the project, the peer training and recruitment of new farmers and above all the commitment of getting the financial proceeds of the project back to the farmers.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

watching and at times being part of a highly committed team with such unique approaches to problem-solving. I have great admiration for Cay's determination and perseverance in finding a way to get it done!
