Previously an academic studying American Literature, I have worked in the nonprofit sector for over ten years—bringing strategic and creative thinking to organizations striving to empower and uplift vulnerable children across the world. My favorite author is J.D. Salinger, and my heart lies in Malawi, the Warm Heart of Africa.
Thanks, Marnie! We are incredibly proud of all the inspiring commitment our communities have, including the way they share knowledge with people who aren't directly enrolled in the program. It's this kind of ripple effect that really enables meaningful change!
I couldn't agree more! It's so important to engage with the community and to help them build a solution that is appropriate and empowering. It's been amazing to see how impactful this can be, and our organization is incredibly proud of all the hard work our Malawian program team is doing to build relationships that foster real, sustainable change. I am happy to hear you this approach!
