Sayydah Garrett

Term:

Since Sept 2012

Profile:

Sayydah Garrett is originally from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. From childhood, she saw her parents set a good example of helping the less fortunate people in their community. This instilled the lifelong passion Sayydah has for helping others, whether it’s watching over elderly neighbors in her town, contributing to her favorite charities or fostering orphaned elephants in Kenya. Her personal mission statement is, "Tell me what you want and I'll help you get it." Sayydah has 10+ years of experience in the corporate sector as an Executive Assistant at American Express Bank in New York, and 10 years in the non-profit sector as an Executive Assistant, Development Assistant and Grant Writer for an agency that assists the homeless population in New Jersey. Sayydah is fluent in English, French and Russian, and speaks conversational Spanish. She loves learning languages and meeting people from all over the world, especially when they share food with her! She has traveled to over 25 countries and visited Samburu, Maasai Mara and Nairobi, Kenya for the first time in August, 2012. While on safari in Samburu, Sayydah met Samuel Siriria Leadismo, a Samburu Warrior who shared his dream and vision of starting an organization to help marginalized children in rural Kenya. Sayydah and Samuel co-founded Pastoralist Child Foundation. Sayydah is honored and excited to work with Pastoralist Child Foundation and making a difference in the lives of Kenyan children. Sayydah holds a Bachelor of Arts, Honours in Russian Language & Literature from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.

Leadership Statement:

We are fully dedicated to eradicating harmful practices such as FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) and forced early marriages in the Samburu and Maasai Mara communities in Kenya. We are incorporating safe alternative rites of passage for girls and sponsoring girls' education at the primary and secondary school levels.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

In the short amount of time since our founding in September, 2012 we have provided educational sponsorships for 6 girl students at the primary and secondary school levels in Samburu and Maasai Mara, Kenya. Our sponsorships provide tuition, boarding, healthy meals and snacks, transportation, medical, bedding (mattress, sheets, pillow, blankets), school uniforms and shoes, school supplies, iron lock box. Parents and guardians of the girls we sponsor promise not to circumcise the girls before, during or after they receive educational sponsorships from us.
For more in-depth information about this organization's impact, view their Charting Impact Report.
