First of all, thank you Ryan for such an informative and straightforward view of the GWF in Kate’s words, related to how the organization was able to not only survive the lockdown, but continue to thrive. Congratulations to you, Kate, your staff and most of all your students for putting in the work to remain successful. As a former teacher, I’m proud to continue to contribute to this NGO. Continued success!

All evidence of outstanding leadership. It’s easy to lead when times are good (which they rarely are for not-for-profits).
Kudos to Kate, Ryan, and their team. Much to be proud of in their development of leaders within.
