Review for Partners of the Americas, Inc., Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hi, my name is Elias Alcocer-Puerto. I want to tell you that "Compañeros de las Américas" (Partners of the Americas) is an organization that has positively changed my life. I knew "Compañeros" almost 30 year ago. I was a young man looking for an orientation in his life, and I found it in the work we do at "Compañeros". I was born and live in Yucatán, México, and I´m an Anthropologist and Ecologist, and that has allowed me to know and live now in a Mayan community, in which I can do many things from the local, to be able later to impact the global. And that´s what Compañeros does well. It encourage us to work within our own places, solving our problems ourselves, and at the same time, connecting with other groups and other people who can help us to better solve our own problems. Local chapters work well as they help us to interact and find joint solutions to problems. Now that I am part of the Board of Directors of POA, I represent my Country and now my gold is to help more people and groups of people know the work methodology of our organization, and help them to continue working to solve the problems that we have as a society. All througt teamwork from all contries of our "Continente de América". Gracias
