Rosalie Giffoniello is a retired teacher, founder of the charity Empower the Children in 1999, and runs the charity herself as virtually a "one man show" with salaries paid only to Indian teachers. She takes no salary and pays most of her own expenses to go to India and supervise the provision of housing, feeding and educational services directly to orphans and poor children in Calcutta, India. For 2010 (budgeted) and 2009 (actual) administrative costs were $1300 and program expenditures $38.000 (which translates into hundreds of thousand rupees).
