My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for FNE International, E Weymouth , MA, USA
I love volunteering with FNE! I volunteered with FNE in 2015 when I traveled to Nicaragua and again in 2016 to Peru as a PA student. I was able to help provide direct clinical services to patients with limited access to health care. FNE facilitated intensive learning and reflection, with time for fun and exploring. The trips were easy and fun to plan and I always felt safe while traveling and abroad. I met so many incredible people, including my fellow PAs, local providers, FNE leadership and most importantly, the local community. I returned from each trip feeling humbled and inspired- wanting to find new ways to improve disadvantaged groups abroad as well as in my local community. The service work inspired me to learn Spanish and get directly involved with communities I care about. I am especially proud to work with a organization who strives for sustainable change and puts an emphasis on empowering communities. I look forward to volunteering for FNE for the rest of my life as I believe their approach to global change is as authentic and impactful as they come.
