Review for Outreach International, Kansas City, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a person with an extensive business background, I have been frustrated with charitable efforts that would be considered heresy to people knowledgeable in the field. No market surveys. No follow up to determine whether you're creating anything of value. The "illegal dumping" of free goods that destroy the livelihoods of local farmers and small businesses.

Outreach does the opposite. As a matter of fact, their entire development process is geared toward developing local self-sufficiency by empowering communities to solve their own problems. Connecting people to regional resources, developing teams who tackle problems, creating the entrepreneurial spirit - these are the true drivers of sustainability.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field
