Global Orphan Foundation has been my home, my heart, and my mission for the last few years. My dog and I picked up and moved to Indianapolis to join the GOF team in 2016 and haven’t looked back since. Once I understood that 1 in 7 children under the age of 5 was dying of malnutrition in DRCongo and that GOF was doing something about it, I wanted to do anything I could to be a part of the solution.
A lot has changed for me in this time frame (I met and married my husband, bought a house, and gained the love of three step-dogs) but the changes in my life pale in comparison to the changes that GOF has made. Not only changes in our programs, but also changes in the lives of the children we are lucky enough to serve.
As I start this chapter as US Director of Global Orphan Foundation, I want to take a moment to reflect on what we’ve already accomplished together.
Our long-time Executive Director Nicole Brandt will be departing Global Orphan Foundation in April of 2019. Below are her thank yous and goodbyes.
