2012 Integral Fellows Finalist: The Mona Foundation

Mahnaz Javid

How do you grow an organization supporting just 300 children to one serving more than 40,000 women and children in 12 countries around the world? Mahnaz has done that by creating long-lasting partnerships to develop support programs in education for schools in Haiti, to business institutes for rural women in India and Mongolia, to the Sunflower Mission in Vietnam. The result of this “grass roots” approach has been dramatic, and over time projects are able to manage initiatives of greater scope and complexity. In fact, three education programs have attained university status with centers in the Amazon, rural Cambodia and Panama.
