Last week at a Twentieth Anniversary Celebration we had the pleasure to present Jim Oakes with a Lifetime Achievement award.
Jim is a living example of the spirit of this award.
Jim travelled to visit Five Talents partners around the world in a dozen places, supported our work for 15 years, served as Board Chair, and gave an entire year of his life as the acting Executive Director.
In addition, Jim and his wife, Peggy, have been faithful financial supporters.
Please join me in thanking Jim for a “lifetime” of walking with our partners and improving the lives of many thousands!
