All around the world, largely out of public view, thousands of small NGOs help protect our planet’s natural resources. The daily work of these small organizations is carried out quietly and on limited means, yet their countless achievements compliment and bolster the work of large environmental and humanitarian organizations. Unfortunately, due to a lack of support, many are forced to abandon their projects and go under, taking with them the hopes of a community. It is vital to preserve each country’s network of community associations and preserve the spirit of goodwill. Acting under the long term guidance of local leaders, we can contribute to the preservation of places and to the greater well-being of populations.
