"My husband and I encountered Sustainable Harvest International through an Elderhostel trip in Belize, where we heard a presentation from one of the field agents, had a tour of a cacao farm where the farmer learned from SHI and saw the effect this organization has on the local community. I am very confident that it is worth supporting, with donations having impact both on quality and length of life, as well as the health of the planet."
