Last weekend we completed our 5 year strategic planning process with our Mitrata-Nepal Foundation for Children board and staff members and Leena and Yogesh Satyal from BSF, our partner in Nepal. It was a long day starting at 8:30 am and followed by a great dinner and celebration hosted by long time sponsors, Arlene Miller and Hewie Powell.
We focused on a specific plan for growth by adding 25 more children and another Contact Center, making some improvements in our current programs and relocating our current Contact Center to a larger space. It was a day of high energy, good discussion and brainstorming.
We plan for growth of our organization but all agreed that keeping to our core values for our operations is of primary importance. Our core values are a commitment to: caring for children and making a difference in their lives in a tangible way, education as a foundation for a successful life, transparency in all of our interactions, championing and empowering children to give back to their communities, and respecting Nepali culture and traditions.
Thanks to all of the board, staff, sponsors, donors and volunteers in Nepal and USA who make this all possible!
