Changing The World

Check out this 2 minute video about the Daughters of Toleza Scholarship project and see how these African girls and their sponsors are changing the world .

Maybe I'm a little biased but I think that in Vermont you'll find a higher percentage of people who are working to change the world.  It's just a guess… I don't have any reasearch to back it up, but here's an example. 

At Vermont Woods Studios we did a joint project a few years ago, with a group of students from Marlboro College Graduate Center who were studying to get their MBA in Managing for Sustainability.  Many of those professionals are now workng to change the lives of girls in Africa as part of the Daughters of Toleza Scholarship.

I was looking at Marlboro's Facebook to learn what other projects students and alumni are involved in and I was impressed to see dozens of projects ranging from the Raleigh City Farm (a national recipient of Green America's People & Planet awards) to Three Revolutions: Funding Food Through Community.  We salute the students, faculty and staff at Marlboro College for their fine work and dedication to changing the world.  We're proud supporters of the Daughters of Toleza Scholarship.  Check it out through this 2 minute video and see how these African girls and their sponsors are changing the world.

Marlboro-grad-center-mba Our thanks go out to the fine people at the Marlboro College Graduate Center in Brattleboro, Vermont for their help and support in a recent project we collaborated on together.

MBA students, Jennifer Marshall Grantham, Rupert Grantham and Don Simms who are completing their Masters in Business Administration Degrees in Managing for Sustainability worked with us at Vermont Woods Studios to provide research and recommendations on growth strategies for our business.

We greatly appreciate their time, talents and insight into our business.  I also wanted to thank their advisors Bruce Gardner of the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation BDCC and Will Keyser of the Marlboro Grad Center and Startup Owl, who have contributed their expertise to our strategic growth plan.  We value this partnership and look forward to further collaborations in the future.
