As a board member, it has been a great honor to assist The Nobelity Project and the founders, Christy and Turk Pipkin in the impactful and varied work that TNP is involved in around the world. Education and connecting people globally through education has been a main focus of TNP and seeing the empowerment in the faces of those whose communities have benefited AND those who have donated and volunteered, is an amazing example of how working together globally and locally make a difference in so many lives. TNP also assists other non-profits doing important work around the world, by making award-winning films which help those groups fund-raise and gain visibility for their projects. Schools, libraries, clean water systems, tree planting and incredible documentary films, these and many other projects have been accomplished in less than ten years because of the integrity of TNP and the founders, and their dedication to efficient use of funds, and hands-on community volunteers working together to accomplish life-changing goals, in the US and abroad.
