Children's Education Foundation - Vietnam welcomes its new board member Michele Spirn

Welcome Michele!

We are thrilled to welcome to our board Michele Spirn who I first met in Vietnam about 6 years ago.  Michel has much to offer Children's Education Foundation - Vietnam's board. She is a truly passionate and caring woman as well as having many skills and great expertise as she has had a varied career as a public relations professional, author and university professor, and more. She brings with her many years of NGO experience, as well as skills and creative useful ideas that she wishes to help implement.  Michele shares our passion for education of girls in developing countries and the importance of literacy. She is already greatly appreciated by our board!

'Mobile Library for Literacy'. 

On my last visit to the US Michele and Stephen donated many books to our 'Mobile Library for Literacy' program, including some Michele had written. She is the children's author of 'The Know Nothings' as well as other lovely books. All the books they gave us are beautifully illustrated and are aimed at young children; perfect for the children in Vietnam to read and enjoy! 
I feel honored to be able to work with her, to be able to have CEF benefit from all her NGO expertise and professional skills, but also I am very happy to have such a caring supportive friend to work with.
