"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."
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."
"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"
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?"

"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

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

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
queries. NGOabroad was a definite sanity saver in my search for an

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."
“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.”
