By Merritt Frey, Executive Director
Please help us welcome Chris Mason to Mali Rising’s board of directors! Chris actually joined us early in 2018, but we’ve been remiss in sharing the news.
“I was inspired to join Mali Rising when I learned that I could help promote education opportunities for children in Mali,” says Chris. “Education has profoundly shaped my career, so the idea that I could help an organization open education paths for children in an economically depressed region was exciting.”
Chris has already been a great contributor to our work and our board. He sits on our Internal Affairs Committee, which makes sure we’re implementing best financial practices and monitors our progress on key programs.
“My experience thus far on the Board has been highly rewarding as this past year has demonstrated how significantly our efforts and donors can directly impact lives the people we're serving,” says Chris.
When not helping keep us on track, Chris enjoys spending time with his family and in the outdoors. His hobbies include hiking and bird watching.
