Review for Empowerment International Inc, Boulder, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered with EI because they are one of the few out there who are actually doing Aid right. They really do empower communities, one family at a time. No messing with local economy. No messing with role of parents. No free hand outs. They meet parents halfway and support them in sending their kids to school. Parents remain parents to their kids, not EI.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that I now have confidence that I can implement the kind of change that EI is doing in Nicaragua right here in Canada. There are many disempowered native people who are isolated from the rest of Canada. I hope to impact them the same way that EI empowers communities everyday.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase the manpower. There is so much that EI already does and I feel they could do way more with more resources.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
