a connector, a dreamer, a builder
Over the past forty years I have traveled to the most remote and exotic places on the planet. I have worked and lived on every continent (other than Antarctica). I have executed major development projects in places as diverse as Ethiopia, Belarus, Colombia, India, and at home in Greenville, South Carolina.
Most of the time I work in underserved communities -- places many would see as desperate and even hopeless. I now know there is no such thing as hopeless. When you start with visionary leaders; add creativity and innovation; and determin-ation: well, the seemingly impossible happens.
The road has been beautiful. I have met the finest leaders on the planet. I have seen courage and sacrifice which took my breath away. I now no the magic hope brings.
Here are some of the milestones over the years:
We partnered with organizations in the US, Canada, and Ethiopia to place 600,000 Bibles in Ethiopia.
We partnered with organizations from the US and Ethiopia to establish a national leadership training network in Ethiopia which has served more than 20,000 leaders.
We developed an egg production business partnership in Ethiopia which generated more than $100,000 in revenue.
We are partnering with visionary leaders in Belarus to build a national community development program.
We developed an app to track well-drilling in India. This app collects detailed data on hundreds of wells serving millions of "Untouchable" people in Eastern India.
