The road has not been easy, yet great accomplishments rarely are. At Kivu Hills Academy, a vocational school in Boneza, Rwanda, the challenge of raising the money to construct the school paled in comparison to the project itself. Today, Phase I of building Kivu Hills Academy is complete. The fact that the work was done largely with hand tools and a labor force that was willing but meager, makes the accomplishment even greater.
In 2014 and 2015, the managing directors of Fulcrum Partners committed to a donation of $10,000 each year, to be administered and matched through the Valmark Securities Global Gift Fund. Fulcrum Partners Senior Vice President Retirement, David Fisher and his wife, Jeanie were on hand in Boneza, lending their support to the construction project. David explained, “If you have not been to Africa, we can tell you that the people and experience will grab your soul and change your perspective on life forever!”
“To those whom much is given, much is expected.”
“Valmark is so grateful for our partnership with Fulcrum and our shared sense of purpose both in business but also in the more important things in life. I am so thrilled that together, Valmark and Fulcrum Partners, once again are able to help the children in Rwanda. What a blessing…what an opportunity…what a responsibility!”
… Caleb Callahan, EVP/COO of Valmark and Chairman of the Valmark Global Gift Fund (GGF)
