Review for FNE International, E Weymouth , MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am an Ph.D.-level agricultural economist who has designed and managed country-level programs across the African continent, now working in Central America. In terms of impact, I am thoroughly impressed with FNE International's achievements during its 20+ years of work. The organization understands that long-term change and personal empowerment happens 'person by person' and takes 'year after year' commitment. If more development organizations across the world had this approach (listening, collaboration, sharing responsibility, personal investment, long-term perspective), we would see less "development-aid dependence" that plagues social and economic development efforts.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide FNE with a larger budget to scale-up its programming.
