I've posted several stories about the important work that the Retail Orphan Initiative does throughout the world. I hope that perhaps you'll be inspired to offer your time, expertise, or even make a donation. At the recent Super Saturday event, a few people were recognized for their contributions to ROI, and were awarded fantastic bobbleheads! Below find the ROI Hall of Fame Class of 2015:
Scott has traveled to 3 different ROI countries (Honduras, Dominican Republic, and Zambia) as well as led 2 different Trips to Zambia. His company Ignisis has also donated numerous firewalls and monitors these for health and keeping the kids safe.
Jeff has made several trips to Honduras and is leading the trip to Congo. He also has been instrumental in helping the microbusiness in Honduras, scheduling Life Skills webinars with business leaders for the kids at Plan Escalon.
Randy is in charge of the RetailROI projects in Honduras. Starting with the original computer lab, Randy has now traveled to Honduras 9 times, leading 7 or 8 of those trips.
John has made several trips to Honduras, but most importantly he spearheaded the donations and installation of a cafeteria kitchen for a school of 600 children by getting suppliers and vendors involved. A US quality cafeteria for total cost of about $65,000. Not satisfied with just that, John had the Schlotzky's food safety course translated to Spanish and taught classes at Plan Escalon so kids would have certification.
Congratulations to all of the inductees!
