Groups i'm working with
I'm happy to have assisted these organizations with organizational development and grantwriting so they can be even more effective in serving the people they are working to empower, here and abroad.
Addie Wyatt Center for Nonviolence Training
I am thrilled to be working with three phenomenal women, Sherri Bevel, Mary Lou Finley, and Pam Smith to create a Kingian nonviolence training center in Chicago to build a culture of peace among high school students, teachers and community residents. I'm assisting with building the organization and delivering the training.
Human Development Foundation
Founded in 1997 by Pakistani physicians in Chicago who were inspired by Dr. Mahbubul Haq, the chief architect of U.N. Human Development Report, HDF works to relieve human suffering in Pakistan by supporting social mobilization, economic development, sustainable environment, primary health care, and education and literacy. I'm assisting with grantwriting.
Legacy Leaders International
This new youth empowerment group, based at North-Grand High School on Chicago's West Side, provides school-day and summer training and life transforming experiences to hundreds of students, "creating a ripple effect of world changers." I'm assisting their dynamic leader, Everett Gutierrez, and their board with strategic and fundraising planning and grantwriting.
