Meet Paulos Group

November 4th, 2013 — 1:52pm

I spent time over the last year intentionally learning about poverty alleviation and some nonprofits that work in that area. In March, 2013 I spent time with Paulos Group, a growing organization that does housing and community development in Haiti. After visiting some other organizations, I came back to Paulos Group to get more involved. I love their entrepreneurial spirit, progressive, best-practices thinking about poverty alleviation, and efficient ability to generate results in very lean ways.

I’m convinced that Paulos Group has the opportunity to make a remarkable impact on poverty in their area, and even on how community development is done in the poorest places on earth.

The leadership of Paulos Group recently invited me to join their board of directors, an opportunity I am thrilled to engage in. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of this work.

In a few weeks my wife and I, and our kids are heading back to Haiti for another visit. It promises to be an adventure.
