Today we presented iGA to our friends and family. It was a very nice evening and our friends had a chance to learn about our work with iGA and also contribute ideas. iGA or Interface Global Alliance is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that will be our platform to help us irradiate poverty, improve education and health in the small rural villages of Equatorial Guinea, thru sustainable development projects.

It has taken nearly 6 months to set up this non-profit organization. Not only did I have to attend workshops, read countless articles and stories and also interview experienced humanitarians to learn the finer points of running a successful non-profit organization, but I have spent much of that time doing tons of research.

The board members of iGA (Paul Mulford, Dan Ragatz, Rick Craft) have been instrumental in helping me work through so many of the issues that must be studied and considered when starting an organization like this one. I am very excited about the projection for iGA and also I am thrilled to see how many people are buzzing about the opportunity to help fight poverty in Africa.

Please visit our website for more information about iGA and don't forget to sign the guest book.
