Review for Outreach International, Independence, MO, USA
As a Board member I have personally seen the consistent results of Outreach International's work in Bolivia, Nicaragua and the Philippines. Sending only a trained facilitator (who is a local national) to teach cooperation and inspire hope, the power of community spirit and working together transforms poverty into prosperity and hope.
Too often we assume that poverty can only be changed by material things from the outside. Instead, it is an intrinsic thing on the inside that really changes poverty. Outreach International's "Participatory Human Development Process" transforms how a village thinks about themselves, others and the challenges that result in poverty, and provides a new way to address those challenges.
It is a joy to see the results and hear the stories of those who have together improved their lives for a better, sustainable future.
