Rating: 5 stars  

offers environ internship programs in 6 countries that stress sustainability, interns encouraged to find alternatives to bottled water, we boiled water, used filters, aqua tabs to cut down on bottles, does not fund animal husbandry projects nor other project that might negatively impact environ

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

the small scale grants given through interns.

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

add more countries.

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

the friends made and relationships formed.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

organized and helpful. All my calls, e-mails, and questions were always answered.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

offer large scale grants.

Ways to make it better...

I had had a clear work plan from the get-go.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the same that face any like it - how to make projects and programs truly sustainable.
