David M.

Advisor

Rating: 5

I recently spent 10 days in the Philippines touring the ICM oeprations at three of their bases. I have never seen this level of efficiency derived from the business leadership of David Sutherland, combined with local staff that all grew up in the ultra-poor conditions of the families they serve and a laser focus on the poorest of the poor. They provide values, livelihood and health education along with practical community development centered around a network of 1800 local leaders. I have toured hundreds of charities, and was deeply impressed by the scale and impact they are having with people that earn less than 40 cents a day.
