  • Alison Arams (Member)

    I started a nonprofit called Usangule Food For Thought with a mission to use self-sustaining agricultural projects to increase access to education and improve learning conditions in rural Tanzania. I became inspired when I was placed in Usangule village in South-Central Tanzania as a volunteer English teacher in 2012-13. Our vision is a thriving, independent village where healthy students receive quality education and opportunity to break out of the cycle of poverty. Our first project involves a school maize farm which has been providing porridge breakfast each school day to the 1,400 students of Mandachini Primary and Usangule Secondary schools since 2014. While there has been a major increase in student attendance and performance since then, there is much more to accomplish, such as maximizing sustainability and nutrition, expanding the project to reach more schools, finding clean water solutions, and creating scholarship opportunities for successful students. We also share a focus on women's empowerment, especially since our food project has helped inspire the local district to select Usangule Secondary to be expanded into an advanced-level boarding school for girls! In my own response to our progress, I have recently left my teaching career to pursue this cause full time. I am looking to network at Posner to gain resources, learn about nonprofit management and project implementation, and potentially partner with other organizations. View Website >>

  • Aaron Manheim (Member)

    Salesforce professional with 10+ years of deep business analyst, system administrator and developer experience.  I've been working for Salesforce since 2006 where I started in the mailroom and worked my way up through Technical Support, IT and now R&D.  I've worked on implementations of the Salesforce platform for both very small- and very large-scale organizations, including Salesforce's own internal implementation of our platform across our many business units. I'm interested in connecting with Posner Center organizations and hearing how they are utilizing Salesforce and potentially helping them optimize their use of the Salesforce platform. Note that I'm not a sales guy and have no interest in selling anything to anyone!  Salesforce encourages all employees to donate our time by volunteering or providing pro bono consultative services to non-profits, so working with the organizations at Posner is entirely within the charter of my job and I'm happy to do it!
