My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Outreach International, Kansas City, MO, USA
It has been a privilege to work with Outreach International (OI) that supports the Participatory Human Development (PHD) process towards community-led development here in the Philippines. The good thing about implementing PHD is that we get to work and relate directly with folks in marginalized communities and ensure that they play vital roles in all development initiatives and actions. It is not the typical approach of merely helping those in need, rather, it is collaborating with those people so that together we can better their lives and eliminate poverty issues. OI has been supportive and appreciative of our development work since day one. Their unwavering assistance in funding numerous community-led projects in the Philippines is just one of many things that we are thankful for. Also, my work being a project development staff has allowed me to document and share the inspiring stories of people whose lives were transformed because of the projects funded by OI.
Further, OI’s financial and moral support has fueled not only our organization and people’s organizations to sustain but also encouraged us to thrive even in the face of adversities in pursuit of development. They did not fail to provide us with a solid support system and nurture a working culture that is full of optimism, commitment, and passion. Words of encouragement and appreciation from OI staff have been of help in boosting our confidence and intensifying our commitment to being of service to humanity.
Being in the development practice is a fulfilling and rewarding job. I am beyond grateful that I have the opportunity to work with Ol. My working experiences with them made me who I am today - a passionate and dedicated development practitioner who works toward a better world where no one is left behind!
It's a privilege to work with YOU, Valerie! Your work truly makes a difference in the world, and we appreciate the interviewing and videotaping skills you continue to develop to illustrate the impact that people are making in their communities.
