Architect Transforming the Slums 
"I asked Ann for three Lists: 1) resources to enable me to apply my architectural expertise to addressing the slums in West Africa; 2) resources to connect me to prospective entrepreneurs throughout West Africa so that I can teach how to develop, produce and market village handicrafts to global markets; 3) resources that connect me to people who would benefit from my web building and media skills.
Having grown up in Nigeria, I know many resources. Ann gave me organizations and networks of people that made my mission easier. Ann did the legwork that I had no time to do. There are few if any organizations who propose to transform the slums. Ann gave me the pioneers that I will ally and collaborate with. In working with Ann, I found that she thinks like I do: both big picture and down to earth; someone committed to changing the world."

Working with Autistic Children

"I thank Ann very much for the resource lists sended. I looked for  possibilities (volunteer opportunities and paid works) to work and live good quality of life earlier and had a lot of disappointment. I have got very detailed information from Ann about working with autistic children in Malta and other Mediterranean and European countries. Ann is honest, works quickly and soundly, does not discriminate adversely and she has  helpful attitude according to my experience."

Physical Therapy/Occupational Rehabilitation Center
& Wheelchair Manufacturing Shop
When Dutch came to me he said, "I am 60. I have done wheelchair projects in Rwanda, Afghanistan & Vietnam. I want to devote the rest of my life to wheelchair projects. I love Ghana but I am stuck with putting an enduring project together. Can I schedule a Consult
& get resources?" Dutch emailed 2 months later on progress & how NGOabroad helped:

"After two trips to Ghana I had still not gotten my contacts and organizations to mesh and work together.  I had hit a wall and needed some new direction.  After consulting with Ann, 
I was able to think in a new direction and make contacts that made things happen.  Today
I expect to have a Physical Therapy/Occupational Rehabilitation Center and Wheelchair Manufacturing Shop in operation before the end of the year.

NGOabroad's mission?    To help people & grassroots organizations do amazing things.

Most non-profit organizations struggle to sustain themselves. Steve will help create an enterprise that sustains an NGO in India. We won't let him stop there as many of our Partner organizations need his (& your?) creativity & business savvy.

"Ann, you seem really plugged in. Your knowledge of world affairs & current events made it possible for us to determine where my skills would truly be of assistance. Your  consultation was like you took a machete & chopped a path to the meadow of opportunity I'd been looking for."

Public Health: Teamwork from Half a World Away

A friend recommended NGOabroad to me after I completed a Master’s of Science in International Healthcare at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy.  At Bocconi, I met  Jovita, very bright, determined & destined to make a difference. After graduation, Jovita was having difficulty finding work in her home country, Uganda. Knowing that NGOabroad assists people in entering international work, I contacted Ann. Ann helped Jovita clarify her long-term career goals and matched her education and skills with potential NGOs. Ann's help with cover letters was pivotal  in Jovita getting her dream job. NGOabroad exceeded all expectations I had."
