Testimonials




"Business Brain" put to good use in humanitarian work
Martin and I had a few precious moments amidst his travels to figure out where he could volunteer. Martin told me that he wants to apply his business savvy to humanitarian work. "Dear God", I thought, "thank you for sending an incredible "Business Brain" who can help people out of poverty. Please send more."


"Having applied to many professional services and organizations previously, I have never come across the processing speed and hands-on approach offered by Ann and NGOabroad. The volunteering service offered is in line with its claim in that it applies a non cookie cutter approach in handling applicants. Lastly, what stands out is the breadth of options and genuine grasp of my goals and what would be suitable for me. I never could have come up with this volunteer opportunity in Business through my own personal research and networking."

Nursing

"Ann, you've given me great assistance & direction in breaking into international nursing. The information that you sent me would have  taken me years to navigate on my own.  I can honestly say that this is one of the best decisions I've made, and worth every penny."

NGO Consultant: "NGOabroad is unique"
"NGOabroad is the only volunteer organization that could really make good use of my skills and many years of experience in consulting to  non-profits. Wandering around the NGOabroad website provides the first inkling that this is not just another "fill international holes with human pegs" organization.  Your first contact with Ann will confirm your positive hunches. NGOabroad engages you in a one-to-one process intended to first get to know your needs and wants and then to optimally match your
skills with certain of her grassroots partner programs. Really now - is there any other way you'd rather try to do this?"

MBA: International Business: Small & Medium Enterprises

"
Ann has been a Godsend to me: a life coach, a career counselor, a mentor.  In trying to make a career change into international development, she understands my situational constraints and is helping me work around them.  She offers concrete, clear (and often amusing!) guidance, supportive encouragement, and laser-like insight.  She's exceedingly responsive and a pleasure to work with.  With her help, I'm sure I'll be able to get unstuck and pursue my life's passion."

Volunteer Vacation for Family
"To be honest with you, most of these Testimonials on this page intimidated me. I thought, "Can't just a regular person like
me volunteer abroad? Do I have to be some kind of hot shot to go with NGOabroad?!" Ann assured me that NGOabroad has something for everyone.  When my family and I took our first (and perhaps last) vacation to Africa, we saw the amazing
wildlife in the Seregeti, we saw the slave castles on the Ghana coast and my son took drumming lessons. What really capped
it off was our time volunteering with youth. It really opened my eyes, and certainly did so for my kids. We started with our
Trip of a Lifetime and ended with the richest personal journey any of us has ever taken. I recommend NGOabroad highly!"

Such people are changing the world
Silper emailed her request for services while she was working as a Roving Finance Officer with the International Medical Corps in Sudan. When I asked her to email the disclaimer she said, "OK to scan it to you rather than walk for 2 days to the post office in Khartoum?" Silper went on to work in Afghanistan & Burundi. She asked that we assist her to find jobs in Project & Program Management. But most importantly, she asked "Please give me resources that will help me help my home village." After reviewing the resources sent to her, Silper wrote back:

"You are an angel from Heaven."

Human Rights/Women's Rights--COVER LETTER OVERHAUL
Ann me ayudó bastante a mejorar el estilo de mi CV y el de mi carta de presentación o interés. Gracias a sus observaciones mi CV se ve mucho mas organizado y fácil de leer. La carta de interés que ella escribió basándose en mi original fue una sorpresa: directa y al punto. Lo que mas me gustó de sus servicios es su disposición inmediata. De seguro, después de que le escribas, ella te contestará o te llamará en poco tiempo, a veces en pocos minutos. Ella también te hace sentir que eres una persona que tiene algo que ofrecer, y eso es gratificante.

Fulbright Research: Conflict Resolution in the Ukraine
"After 3 months of searching, I wrote to NGOabroad: I am a graduate student studying Peace and Conflict Resolution. I would like to look at the role political apologies play in rebuilding trust. Ukrainian President Yushchenko has built his
term around the idea that if you make a mistake - you acknowledge it and move
on. I must find an organization that is willing to host me. Can you help?”

“Ann’s skilled research saved me at least a month of frustrated searches and
queries. NGOabroad was a definite sanity saver in my search for an internship
in the Ukraine."

On the Merits of a Roadmap

"Searching for contacts or employment overseas can be an overwhelming task. I thought, "Where do I start? What do I do?" I found the services of NGOabroad answered all those questions. Ann dealt with me directly - showing great enthusiasm and knowledge in assisting me with finding work in my country of choice."

Service Sabbatical
“Ann took great efforts to understand my needs and goals in taking a social service sabbatical to South America. Consequently, the list of international organizations that NGOabroad gave me was very tailored to my specific needs. I got much more than I could have gotten from the Internet: access to databases and information that I was unaware of and a deeper perspective on Latin America and the practical issues associated with traveling there. Ann was very considerate of me, especially my busy schedule. The fee that I paid is a small price to pay for such a valuable service and for the many hours that Ann spent preparing the list.”

"Ann
In a world where so many people are so confused about WHAT to do
or HOW to do what they want to do, you have proven to me that NGOabroad
is the right door to knock. Besides enlightening and inspiring me, you have
trained me on how to go about my project. Words can't express how grateful
I am. Your reward is with God."
