I am a Board Member for Global Links and also a graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School for Public and International Affairs. Part of the course work for my master's program focuses on accountability in responsible public leadership. Global Links exemplifies this principle, in the process they use to donate medical supplies to Latin American hospitals. The Global Links program officers work with their Latin American counterparts to ensure that the Latin American hospitals only receive medical supplies that they can use. By doing this, the organization responsibly ensures that the supplies sent will be used by the hospitals in need, and not discarded in Latin American landfills.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my work with the Global Links Board and staff.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
increase the number of individuals who support this organization to donate the financial support needed to combine their main office operations with the supplies warehouse to improve the efficiency of warehouse operations.
Board Member & I serve as a board member and volunteer.
