Please join us in welcoming the newest member of HOPE Head Office: Jane Richert. Jane comes to us with a welath of experience as the Manager of our Food For Thought Project here in The Okanagan. Here's a little about Jane...
"I am excited to be joining Hope for the Nations! My background is in the nonprofit sector and more recently, in social enterprise. I am driven by the idea that change begins in our backyards and can have ripple effects around the world. A common thread in my life has been a passion for community and international development. I hold a B.A. in International Development Studies and a MSc. in Nonprofit Management. I bring experience coordinating programs for at risk youth, refugee, and immigrant communities. Most recently, I was involved with a start-up urban farm which sparked an interest in local food security.
This fall I moved from the land of red plates (Alberta) to Beautiful B.C. I attended International Development Day to learn about organizations in Kelowna. My first stop was the Hope for the Nations booth where HOPE staff enthusiastically told me about their amazing work. I loved the global focus but also the importance Hope places on their mandate locally through the Food for Thought program. I was sold.
I am thrilled about and thankful for the opportunity to manage the Food for Thought program. I look forward to learning more about Hope projects and meeting the community that makes this happen".
