Opportunity through Education

Kiwimbi's loyal friend - Jennifer Tse - is currently climbing 19,340 feet to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa.

Led by the most experienced guides with specialized high-altitude training, Jennifer's adventure will take a total of nine days. Along with her fellow campers, she will enjoy the sunrise on the summit of Africa, trek through five eco-zones, and camp by the glaciers on Kilimanjaro's crater rim. 

Jennifer believes strongly in Kiwimbi's mission and chose to donate all funds towards Kiwimbi's educational programs.

Introducing Kiwimbi's Newest Trustee

Janet Wulster is President of Wulster Consulting Services, LLC, providing consulting services in Risk Management, Service Management, IT Audit, and Administration.  She previously was Chief Administrative Officer and Vice President at MFXchange US, Inc., where she focused on Risk Management, IT Audit & Compliance, Human Resources Management, and IT Hardware and Software Procurement.

In semi-retirement, Janet thought about how she could expand her current volunteer activities at her church and as a driver for Meals on Wheels.  Remembering her mother's work in the Head Start Program and, in retirement, helping children in rural North Carolina improve their reading skills, Janet was looking for an opportunity to help children in underserved countries.  When a college classmate talked to her about Kiwimbi's mission of "Opportunity Through Education," Janet was eager to get involved.
 
Janet's focus as a board member is to identify foundations and businesses who provide grants to non-profits and to develop proposals for funding. She has a B.A. in English from Hobart & William Smith Colleges and a Graduate Certificate in e-Commerce from New Jersey Institute of Technology.  She loves to travel and is looking forward working with the children during Kiwimbi's 2018 Service trip.
