We welcome our new Program Manager for East and Central Africa: Melissa Lorenzo. Melissa is passionate about youth development in Africa. She previously volunteered in Nicaragua and Uganda, where she participated in several educational initiatives and health and sanitation projects in rural communities. Melissa will be working closely with the Oak Leaders and the Oaks to ensure that they are supported in the areas of internship contracts, university registration and tuition payments, etc.
Regrettably (for us), Maya Moseley decided to move on from her volunteer role as Program Manager to begin a career. During her past year with TSO, Maya was highly effective in her role and was well respected by the Oaks, Oak Leaders, Mentors and Executive Team. We are thankful to have had the benefit of Maya's "on-the-ground" experience. We wish her the best of luck in her career and hope that our paths cross again in the future.
We also welcome a new member to our Board of Directors: Nick Foster. Nick has worked in the technology sector for thirty years, many of them in Senior Vice President positions with Softchoice. Mr. Foster became involved in corporate philanthropy following the Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2004. Since then, Nick has led more than a dozen international volunteer groups building houses, community projects and computer labs in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and other countries in the world.
Welcome Melissa and Nick!
