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

Rating: 5 stars  

As a young professional looking for a career change, FSD enabled me to spend time in a medical setting in Kenya, practicing public health techniques, basic nursing care, and learning a host of skills that I still use today in my public health and nursing life. By introducing me to incredible people (teachers, nurses, mothers) in Kenya, by supporting me personally and professionally, and by creating and implementing a structured process that allowed me to volunteer successfully and purposefully, FSD truly changed my path.

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

motivated, strong, and capable individuals, all of whom I was lucky to learn from and grow with.

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

do a lot of good in the world, by enabling others to volunteer and creating funding sources for grassroots organizations to fund themselves.

Ways to make it better...

it were longer.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & I was a clinical assistant at a small public hospital in rural Kenya.
