Custom-Fit International Service




"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."

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 her Lists, 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.

"I have a lot to give"
In her cover letter, Teresa said "I think in numbers. I have been an accountant all my life. I have worked all over the world, for such bodies as the Banana Producers Network, a subset of the World Bank. I am retired now but have a lot to give. I don't need or want to be paid but I don't want to drain my retirement fund and I want a bed. Is there such an arrangement?"

"I've been very impressed with the speed and effectiveness of your response to my vague request. Your knowledge of  voluntary services made for meaningful discussions and a custom made plan of whom to contact. It saved me a great deal of research, which might have been hard to carry out successfully. I have begun to get positive responses from the organizations that I contacted."

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.”

Fulbright Scholar's Research on Conflict Resolution in the Ukraine
"NGOabroad was a real help to me during my search for Ukrainian NGO's with whom to intern.  After 3 months
of searching and trying to make contact with various organizations, I wrote to NGOabroad:  
" I am a graduate student studying Peace and Conflict Resolution and 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.  He has also made various apologies. In order to pursue this research project, I must find an organization that is willing to host me.  Can you help?

Ann was able to provide a detailed collection of NGO's that were in my interest area.  She not only provided their contact  information - but also detailed information about their activities and ideas about how I could approach them to obtain their sponsorship.  Her skilled research saved me at least a month of frustrated searches and queries.  Within a week of utilizing the list that NGOabroad had provided me,  I was dialoguing with 4 viable organizations that I had been unable to contact before either because I didn't know about them or because I didn't have the most recent information.  NGOabroad was a definite sanity saver in my search for an internship in the Ukraine."
