Here is a copy of a letter our friend and project consultant Manny Hernandez recently received. The letter is from Mark Green, United States of America Ambassador to Tanzania. In the letter, Ambassador Green acknowledges Manny for his unselfish work to help people. I find the following statement as the most inspirational part of the letter:

Few people have the dedication, let alone the ability, to take their professional skills and use them to lift up those in need. Your teachings and your approach to development will create a lasting legacy that benefits generations to come.

Manny is the embodiment of dedication, ability and generosity. We are honored and proud to know and work with him.

Thank you Ambassador Hernandez.

The letter refers to an article about Manny that appeared in the recent issue of Northern Now, a publication by Northern Illinois University. Read more about Manny and the feature story about him in this publication.
