Board of Directors and Other News

Because of the turmoil in Pakistan, the GEI staff has decided that before we can move forward with the Khane project we need to find a local, Pakistan NGO to partner with. I am looking hard for an organization right now. Hopefully we'll find a few candidates before next spring. When we do find some potential partners, someone from our organization will travel to Pakistan to meet with those NGOs and then decide which one we should work with. It looks like we may have to put off the school renovation for yet another year, which is really disappointing. However, in talking with various organizations, we were heartened to discover that we are, in fact, making decent progress, although it feels slow to Heidi, Elizabeth, and I.

Other news:
We have determined our Board of Directors.
Chair: Heidi Wirtz
Vice Chair: Lizzy Scully
Treasurer: Justin Voorhees
Floating Members: Elizabeth O’Neill

Also, I will now be running all ground operations. Heidi and some of our new volunteers, including Amee Hinkley, will be focusing on Stateside fund raising.

Elizabeth O'Neill, as always, is acting as our consultant. (Honestly, we don't know what we'd do without her expertise. Thanks E!)
