Mission

We help marginalized girls and women escape a life of poverty. Education is the most effective pathway to rise out of poverty – and focusing on girls is the surest way to do that. Accordingly, we identify and support those organizations with proven abilities to nurture and educate girls and women. We support them financially, and we coach the leaders to run their organizations sustainably.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We conduct workshops and work closely with the supported organizations to actually measure their degree of sustainability and to help them build increasing their sustainability into their strategic planning processes.

Those that work diligently towards increased sustainability earn additional financial support from us, in addition to our coaching.

We travel to the region at least four times each year conducting workshops and various training sessions. In addition we coach organizations individually.

We find no substitute for being there, on-the-ground, working directly with the organizations we support, spending about six months each year doing this work.

Our Founder and Treasurer, Bill Taylor, is a Certified Management Consultant, now retired after a long and successful career. Our President, M. Peter Scontrino Ph.D. is a highly successful industrial psychologist now practicing in the Seattle area and nationally. Our Secretary, Mizuki Asano, holds a masters degree in organization development and is an experienced consultant in that field.

Bill spends six months each year working directly in Myanmar, Cambodia, and Thailand. Peter joins him often to coach and train our supported organizations in achieving greater sustainability.

We continue to make progress with the 30 to 35 organizations currently supported. Firmly believing we are on the right track, we intend to pursue this course diligently helping them to achieve greater financial and operational sustainability.
