Melissa Cutler, Director of Media Relations and Fundraising
Melissa is inspired by this quote from Mother Teresa: “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one.” Feeding the one, or educating the one gives her hope for the future of the women and girls of Mozambique. A visit to meet the students sponsored by No Poor Among Us reinforced the value of the organization’s efforts to provide much needed education and self-sufficiency skills, as well as a guiding light in dark circumstances. She saw how students often lived alone in mud huts, walking hours per day to school. To each of these girls, education is the best starting point to changing her future.
Matt Hamblin, Director of Finance and Ag Projects
Matt has a deep interest in improving the lives of those in Mozambique through education and increased economic prosperity. He is dedicated to tackling the biggest hurdles facing Mozambicans, and sees these efforts as paying dividends in the future, especially food, housing, school supplies and uniforms, and the women’s centers providing sanctuary where local women can improve themselves.
