choiceHUMANITARIAN offers solutions to the hardships of poverty in the rural villages of the world through simple technologies, self-help initiatives and public awareness.
Poverty has been defined as a lack options. CHOICE Humanitarian, The Center for Humanitarian Outreach and Inter-Cultural Exchange, helps provide options for hundredsof rural villages in developing countries around the world. Villagers decide for themselves what kinds of assistance and/or training are most needed in their villages. They communicate these needs to CHOICE Humanitarian field staff in their countries. CHOICE then responds to those needs by working with the villagers to implement simple technologies, self-help initiatives, training and public awareness programs. CHOICE helps with funds and villagers supply the labor and available local materials/resources. This proven developmental approach helps strengthen villager's self-reliance and increases ongoing project success. CHOICE Humanitarian also organizes many volunteer expeditions annually to these locations to work with villagers, serve in training capacities, and share in cultural exchange. CHOICE believes that awareness and understanding is key in fighting poverty. Volunteer expeditions help increase understanding for villagers and volunteers alike. CHOICE Humanitarian is committed to helping villagers help themselves. Please visit our website at www.choicehumanitarian.org for more information.
CHOICE is a well run organization with a staff of highly competent, driven employees that help to create a great working environment. I first worked with CHOICE as an intern. This was a fantastic opportunity, because there are so many opportunities to learn and the staff are excited to work with you. I enjoyed my time so much that I have continued working with CHOICE as a volunteer. I am continuing to learn and develop skills. Volunteering with CHOICE has been an invaluable experience. I am excited for my experience to come full circle as I go to Nepal with them on a humanitarian expedition.
