Describe the Impact of a Project you’re focused on.

I just wrapped up another fundraiser for The George Malaika Foundation, a school dedicated to educating young women in the Congo. I continue to identify opportunities within the Congo, partnering with organizations focused on improving access to high quality education and mentorship. More to come on supporting Microfinance projects focused on empowering the enormous population of adults under the age of 25 searching for opportunities that bring their self sustaining ideas to life.

What results do you hope for when the impact is amplified?

The hope for amplifying impact within my areas of interest, would result in an ecosystem made up of a highly educated Congolese population and a grassroots economy that will develop into a robust market place for these individuals. The hope is that by impacting education, we can create an environment that leads many to a path out of poverty and into a path of self reliance.

What do you have to offer as a connector? What can you give as expertise to others?

Currently I’m in the beginning stages of my impact knowledge. What I can provide a questions related to accounting and taxation.
