The Team:

Michael Fingleton      Founder/Director Originally from Ireland I have been living in California for over 17 years. I have worked for Cisco Systems all of this time, currently in the position of Principal Engineer. Addicted to outdoor sports I have traveled to many wonderful parts of the world, caving in Tasmania, backpacking in Alaska, sailing in Grenada to name just a few. It was during a trekking trip to Makalu Base Camp that I met the children in Khandbari and now I am addicted to Nepal.  Daniel Hori      Director Born in Texas and raised in Hawaii, I have worked in Silicon Valley for over 25 years in the high tech industry. I was introduced to the plight of the Nepalese children by Michael and share in his vision to improve lives through education. Although we are a small charity, we can have a big impact. I currently reside in Milpitas with my wife and 2 children and enjoy being an active volunteer with the high school music boosters. Michael Baikie    Director Originally from Ireland I have been living in California for over 17 years. I have worked for many Silicon Valley technology firms in a variety of roles. I have travelled through many parts of the world (Nepal is still on the to do list) and have seen the challenges that families face. The small difference that our group makes to the families of the children at the Khandbari home is the reason I  have dedicated my time to this non-profit. Currently I live in Mountain View, CA with my wife Heidi Baikie and our two amazing children, Meskerem and Tirunesh. Gareth O’Connell    Director My name is Gareth O Connell, I have lived in the Bay Area for almost 20 years. Between my son Paul and my small electrical business, I keep quite busy. A little time can always be found to help those who lack the advantages, we take for granted in developed countries. Thanks for stopping by this site, we hope it encourages your support.
