Hands on!

The program in Zimbabwe was by far the most ambitious.  The entire region of Plum Tree was in dire need of water.  The plan was to provide 100 new wells, train local villagers how to maintain the wells and create a sustainable model for operations in other countries.  Then we wanted to align local funding sources with our local entity so that the work could be handed over and perpetuated for years to come.  That strategic plan has been fulfilled.

Helping at home!

Throughout my career I have been blessed with the ability to serve people in developing countries.  There have also been opportunities to serve here at home.  From my time in the USAF to the hurricane relief efforts I have always sought to give back to my fellow Americans!

My Success Stories

Inauguration photos 017 Liberia

I arrived in Liberia in 2004 shortly after the civil war in Liberia theoretically ended. The nation was devastated by 21 years of intense conflict. Thousands were killed as the country was torn apart. The infrastructure was decimated, food and water were scarce and the people were suffering. I designed a training program for ex-combatants which would require them to disarm to enter the program. They were then trained in water provision, health, hygiene, sanitation, reading and community development. In December 2005 US Ambassador Donald E. Booth contacted me and asked that we plan and implement a renovation program of the Capitol and Executive Mansion for the inauguration of Madame Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first democratically elect female African President. We employed our students and in 12 days we completed the monumental task of making Monrovia a show place for the world. Transformation is an understatement! The team completely impressed world leaders in attendance as well as those who saw the ceremony on television.

Captured 2006 8 19 00027 Rwanda

Rebuilding trust in Rwanda was difficult after the genocide took a million lives in three months. People were not only scared but they lacked access to clean safe water. I fell in love with Rwanda the first day. Through hard work building relationships with donors and stakeholders we were able to develop a program that is still going today.

Dsc00100 (640x440) India

India has one of the largest populations in the world. The caste system continually restrains the development of large numbers of people. These people lack access to clean safe water and basic sanitation. We arrived in India in 2012 and have built a sustainable program that will meet the needs of these people for many years. We have turned over control to our local entity, complete with in country funding sources.

Dsc00878 Kenya

Kibera is the second largest slum in Africa. More than one million people live in Kibera. Water and sanitation conditions are deplorable! We aimed to change that, but in order to do so we would have to drill a new well that would be 1450 feet deep. The well was completed and had far greater capacity than we ever dreamed! Today the well still produces 21 cubic meters of water per hour and is connected to a bath house, a medical clinic and serves thousands daily.

P6210048 The CAR

The Central African Republic (CAR) is one of the wildest countries on the continent of Africa. The government often changes hands based upon bloody coup d'etat. I was contacted by the office of USAID about an outbreak of Hepatitis E. Thousands of people killed during a recent war had been buried near the city of Bangui and its residents were dying daily. We soon realized that the cemetery location was polluting the water source. We designed a program to supply water away from the cemetery.
