My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Sustainable Harvest International, Boston, MA, USA
From the moment I set foot on a small village in Santa Barbara-Honduras, I could tell that SHI was making a great impact in the lives of the 30 participants assign to the project. I was lucky to be part of a Church women's trip in 2009 and spent 10 days working along side the small farmers and their families. They were elated that we had traveled so far to spend time with them and visit their humble homes. SHI has provided tools and knowledge for a better way to plant without using the slash/burning practice that is so common in Central America They also provide materials to build a very efficient burning stove with a chimney creating a healthier environment for the women and children who spend most of their time inside the house. All the practices are sustainable and organic, no pesticides but the most important part is that is a partnership with the farmers to increase access to healthy food and income. I got so impressed that I became involved first as a volunteer and now as a Board member. SHI has my fully support!
