My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Curamericas Global, Raleigh, NC, USA
I have worked with Curamericas Global since 2016- as a volunteer medical provider on 2 separate trips to Guatemala, and as a public health researcher, part of a team writing up the results of Curamericas' good work.
Curamericas Global is heads above other organizations I have worked with in terms of working together with communities to bring about lasting change. Their model of partnering with local NGOs builds capacity in the places they are working, creates more equitable programs and provides built in sustainability. The CBIO methodology means that no one is left behind, and makes sure programs reach the most marginalized members of the community.
The volunteer trips/cultural exchanges are well run and a perfect mix of work + learning about the culture. I've brought two of my kids on the volunteer trips, and my youngest can't wait until she is old enough to go- a terrific experience for all!
