TravelTalk Radio’s host, Sandy Dhuyvetter, interviewed our director, Suzanne Skees, to learn what drives our diverse family of 30 members in 3 generations to work to end poverty worldwide. We talk about our legacy of “philanthropy of the hands,” our inborn belief in the equality of all people, and the shared values of our family of middle-class Americans who will not rest until all people have a chance at the same opportunities we’ve had to earn an education, procure work, take care of our health and families, and live in peace.
