1. I offered to be a Trustee mainly because of my extensive int'l experience in NGOs, particularly those that delivered adult literacy and child education programmes (e.g. PLAN International www.plan-international.org). I was also chief financial officer of an NGO that focuses on girl child education. 2. I expressed my interest on 15-June-2018 to the ad with expiry date of 15-Nov-2018 or five months later. However, the organization informed me that they had recently added several members to their Board. They should have taken down the ad to avoid disappointing (and wasting time of) potential volunteers. 3. It is rather dishearting for potential volunteers that the organization prefers its Trustees to come from "nearby" towns -- I live in Middlesex County which but one hour from the programme areas; locally in New Jersey I have explored volunteer opportunities as "far" as Morris and Ocean Counties; and I am slated to travel to Nicaragua and to Uganda, in volunteer endeavors.
