Review for The Global Mountain Fund Inc, Sandia Park, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

I spent two weeks at HerFarm and it was a wonderful experience!
The women are incredibly kind, warm and strong --- and so fun to be with! The term sister is used - but it becomes more than a term .... you become sisters quickly!
The kids will melt your heart and it will be so hard to say goodbye. There are about 17 of them and each one is so special. Working with them in the mornings at school is great, but working side by side with them in field is wonderful! The work is varied - helping in the school, working in the fields, doing light construction were all activities I was able to help with. If there is something you are interested in doing, Shusila is open and will try and arrange for it to happen.

I have volunteered in a lot of countries and with many NGO's but what stands out about this company is that it is local, the founders are invested and a part of the work and the farm is changing lives everyday! Scott is really great about communicating and all the information that comes before you travel is detailed and helpful!

I cannot say enough good things about The Mountain Fund! I cannot wait to go back!
