After years of serving on non-profit boards it is refreshing and life-giving to work with a group of young adults dedicated to re-defining Ghandi's famous quote, "Be the change you want to see"! The Congo Leadership Initiative seeks to empower the next generation of Congolese leaders to be catalysts for peace and prosperity. First World visionaries banded together as they see the promise of a nation across the globe and working with tireless dedication to empower young scholars to dream big! What CLI lacks in major league funding sources, it more than makes up for in talented leadership, passion and promise!

The Congo Leadership Initiative has been shaped by a combination of passionate and talented volunteers. This grassroots organization has already seen impressive results and yet continues to learn and improve consistently. I have been honored to serve on the organization's board and I believe my work has already made a lasting impact.
