Since 1958, we have been fighting poverty in some of the poorest communities in the world.

Our International Board play a central role in all that we do.  Our trustees are leaders, strategists and ambassadors for our mission.

We value the balance of skills and experience of our trustees, and also the different perspectives that their geographical diversity provides.
