Why you’re proud to be a Trustee of Arm in Arm: I have always loved the original intent and focus of Arm in Arm in Africa and the nobility of its mission. I have also been proud of the integrity of the organization and the high percentage of the donation dollars that go directly to the intended recipients. I was deeply moved when I witnessed the direct and positive impact on my daughter and wife’s lives after they traveled with “Arm in Arm” to South Africa twelve years ago. Now I am impressed with how flexible AIAIA is in working with the key, impacted South Africa communities in determining how to best meet their needs.
