Review for Rainforest Partnership, Austin, TX, USA
Volunteering with Rainforest Partnership was a wonderful experience. I discovered the organization while I was out of work a few years ago and was excited to find them in my community. I support their mission to work with rainforest communities to give a hand up and not a hand out enabling development of alternative means of sustainable income other than cutting down the rainforest. Volunteers ranged from all ages of students to retired persons with all matter of skills, so I was happy they were able to use my administrative skills. No matter how busy we were, there was always time to gather around the table and share a meal. I was so amazed and thrilled when with their help, the Sani Isla, Ecuador women and community were able to stand together against government and big oil companies to prevent prospecting and drilling on their land. One by one, we can make a difference.
