My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Alliance for International Reforestation, Inc., Atlanta, GA, USA
Why AIR excels:
Guatemalans are both the givers and recipients of care; they are the leaders. This is NOT one of those agencies where North Americans make assumptions about need and/or pretend to know a better way of doing things.
They serve those who agree to be a part of the solution; we work side by side while building lasting and meaningful relationships. The recipients become educated and empowered.
It is a sustainable effort with partnerships that last a minimum of five years.
They get the job done. We were there mid-June and over 500,000 trees had already been planted since the beginning of the year.
And best yet: You will only help to make better what is already an incredibly beautiful country (volcanoes included!) that is filled with wonderful and kind people.
AIR is fully deserving of your time and resources but for those who are able, there is no better way to see and understand it than being there in person!
