Synergos Welcomes 2013 Senior Fellows
Eleven outstanding nonprofit leaders have been named Synergos Senior Fellows, becoming part of network of 144 current and alumni Fellows from more than 50 countries.
Synergos Senior Fellows are selected based on their vision for change, skills, knowledge, experience, and the impact of their work on the communities and countries they serve. Through the Senior Fellows program, Synergos links these leaders to a worldwide learning, support and action network. The overall goal of the program is to strengthen the capacity and opportunities of these leaders to build partnerships that address the systemic causes of poverty and promote sustainable social change.
The Senior Fellows program is made possible in part thanks to support from Kim Samuel.
