"NGOabroad is a fantastic service for anyone wanting to work internationally, be it paid or volunteer work. I was very impressed by Ann,  her honest optimism  (no sugarcoating but no dire warnings) and her curiosity about me and my goals as well as her obvious dedication. Ann's insight into and knowledge of the world and non-profit organizations is invaluable. I now have a much clearer idea of what opportunities are out there for me and I have a real understanding of where I can best contribute my skills.  I consider the service a bargain."                                                               Simone Pfeiffer, Montreal
