Empowering communities to reduce inequalities isn’t an easy job; it involves our board, funders, volunteers and project partner, Human and Hope Association, working together. We are especially grateful for our volunteers who combine their passions and skills to advocate and raise funds for our work. This week, we are shining the spotlight on our Sydney-based Business Development Manager, Nick Terrone. Nick has spent the past week in Siem Reap on our Purpose and Philanthropy Field Trip, which has further strengthened his passion for Human and Hope Association Inc.
Tell us about your professional background?
It was basically the CEO, Sally Hetherington OAM, herself. We both used to volunteer together at a Sydney Inner city charity.
At first it was following Sally’s journey when she was in Cambodia, but being on the philanthropy trip at this very moment, now the motivation is from having directly visited HHA as well as having met the people who make HHA a daily success.
It’s always about fund raising. I’m distributing coin tins at local businesses in Sydney and also looking to connect solopreneurs to HHA in order to help encourage small business to help in any way they can.
My monthly donations for the past five years and the impact they have made.
That in 5yrs-10yrs all HHA Cambodia’s current workers and students have created their own individual and collective success in their own lives and in the lives of their community in such a way that HHA and its current work is redundant.
