“What keeps me coming back and what keeps me involved is the program… ABPD [ALDEA’s partner in Guatemala] doesn’t go to villages and say, ‘We can help you, this is what we can give you.’ ABPD waits for the villages to come to them, because they see what’s been going on in other villages. Then they have meetings with the villages so that the villages themselves think, ‘These are our problems, and this is how we can solve the problem,’ and ABPD says, ‘Yeah, we can partner with you on that.’… I know the model is great because it’s community-led and because it’s results-driven. There’s so much assessment going on and the program is always improving.”
