Review for Foundation for Sustainable Development, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

All in all this was an amazing program and provided me with an incredible experience. There were some issues with my placement but FSD handled them well and had excellent staff in country to provide assistance.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the freedom the organization provided me with. They were hands-off and allowed mt time in Africa to take it's own path. I made the decisions and was ultimately responsible for my own experience but I always knew that FSD was there if I needed help or support.

Ways to make it better...

FSD had changed my placement when it became clear that the clinic I was supposed to be doing HIV work in was going to be significantly delayed. Instead my HIV counseling skills were wasted since I spent my days vaccinating children.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2006

Role:  Volunteer & HIV/AIDS Counselor.
