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

Rating: 5 stars  

I had an amazing experience last summer as in intern in Uganda through FSD. My integration with my host community was well balanced by the support FSD had available to me during my time there. The FSD grant program available to interns was extremely helpful in allowing me to complete a project with my host organization -- improving sustainable agriculture training sessions for a local farmer's group. FSD's focus on creating sustainable projects was evident, and through periodic workshops with FSD, I was able to write a grant on behalf of my host organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the projects their interns (with funding from their grant program) have completed, with emphasis on understanding how the project will be continued after the intern leaves.

Ways to make it better...

I could have afforded to stay longer... the cost of the program makes it difficult to have a long internship.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Volunteer & I wrote a grant to supply a start-up package of seedlings that would accompany the sustainable agriculture training sessions offered by my host organization.
