    Pros

    Very supportive and intelligent people: patient and caring, doing amazing work to help the world. I had the pleasure to work on the International Programs team on assignment and met a lot of important people around the world - Please keep up the wonderful work.

    Cons

    The programs could be more intuitive when completing finance paperwork, but that is a small issue they are correcting at the time. The office space was a little dim, some team members brought in their own lamps.

    Advice to Management

    You do important work for the world, keep up the programs and partner with smaller nonprofits in the United States to improve maternal health and infant stats.


  2. Amazing Foundation, awesome mission statement - dedication to making the world a better place.

    Pros

    This is the kind of dream job everyone should hope for, working for a foundation that provides world solutions to problems that effect lives of children, mothers, women and developing programs in collaboration with other organizations to make the world a better place

    Cons

    work-life balance is tough; especially when everyone brings so much caring and dedication to the many causes.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue your work in Africa
