My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for WINGS Guatemala, Pueblo, CO, USA
I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work as a researcher with WINGS during my time living in Guatemala. I have never come across another charity operating in this country with such an inclusive and compassionate approach to their work. The only employees and volunteers who operate in the field or who have direct access to clients are members of the clients' own communities and they share their language and their culture. Their approach therefore is never condescending and is exclusively based on ensuring that each client has all the education and information that they need to make the best decision for themselves. This more grassroots model is far from the norm among non profits in the country and I have been consistently impressed by the dedication of the promotors and all the employees in the office and by the culturally sensitive, education based programmes. It is a real privilege to be able to assist them in their work!
