World Neighbors Names Dr. Kate Schecter New President and CEO

International development organization continues commitment to sustainability programs to help others help themselves and end global hunger, poverty and disease

OKLAHOMA CITY,

World Neighbors, an Oklahoma City-based nonprofit organization founded in 1951, announced today that its Board of Trustees unanimously supported the appointment of Dr. Kate Schecter as the organization’s next President and CEO. Dr. Schecter will lead the organization’s international programs that espouse a long-term, holistic approach to help strengthen impoverished communities to overcome hunger, poverty, and disease.

Dr. Schecter’s professional experience includes over 22 years working for various organizations, including an international nonprofit organization focused on global health, the World Bank, a leading foundation and several prestigious universities, including Columbia and Harvard. She succeeds Melanie Macdonald, the organization’s first female President and CEO, who guided World Neighbors for ten years and announced plans last fall to re-­‐establish her executive coaching and organizational consulting practice.

“We have never been so poised for growth as we are right now and Dr. Schecter is the perfect fit to help us reach our full potential as an organization,” says Mindy Roe Galoob, World Neighbors Board Chair and head of the search committee. “With her eagerness to continue the collaborative work with Feed the Children and her focus on increasing our support base, we are poised to deepen and widen our global impact so that more communities around the world can experience the power of our unique, grassroots and transformative work.”

In March 2013, World Neighbors became a subsidiary of Feed the Children, another Oklahoma City-­‐based international nonprofit organization, in a unique strategic collaboration. In an effort to support and expand World Neighbors programs that help build self-­‐sufficient communities around the world, Feed the Children assumed the responsibilities of all of World Neighbors back-­‐office and administrative support functions.

With the appointment of the new World Neighbors President and CEO, both organizations are in a strategically strong position to expand their outreach.

“Dr. Schecter is incredibly well-­‐qualified and a great fit for both organizations from a programmatic standpoint. She understands the need to build a community’s capacity to care for itself, and she believes in collaboration at its deepest level,” says Kevin Hagan, Feed the Children’s President and CEO. “She immediately sees the synergies between both the Feed the Children and World Neighbors programs, and we look forward to taking the best of both organizations to start new programming together.”

Dr. Schecter spent many years of her childhood overseas with her family when her father worked as a journalist for Time Magazine. She attended grade school in Moscow, Hong Kong and Tokyo and has traveled internationally extensively all her life. She currently lives in Washington, DC where her husband, Ari Roth, is the Artistic Director of Theater J. They have two daughters, Isabel and Sophie.

“I look forward to spending time in Oklahoma City and to meeting the many people who have supported the organization over the last 63 years. I will be dividing my time between Oklahoma City, Washington D.C. and our field operations,” says Dr. Schecter. “Over the next two years, I intend to visit the 13 countries where World Neighbors is operating programs. It is important for World Neighbors to have a strong and visible physical presence again in Oklahoma City to remain in touch with our founder’s original vision.”

World Neighbors Announces Dignity Award Recipients
Recipients will be honored at the “Journey Around the World” gala, September 21

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – World Neighbors has selected the 2012 Dignity Award recipients to be honored on September 21 at the World Neighbors A Journey Around the World gala. The recipients were chosen from the four following categories: non-profit, for profit, student and individual/couple. Honorees will be presented with a specially designed Dignity Award at the World Neighbors event.

Now in its third year, the Dignity Award recognizes those who invest in the power and potential of others by respecting their dignity and empowering them to greater self-potential – all values shared by World Neighbors. This year’s recipients embody and further those values with their work.

City Care and executive director, Larry Bross, have been honored as the recipients for the non-profit Dignity Award. Since 1995, City Care has been dedicated to helping Oklahoma City’s less fortunate, providing food and shelter to thousands of homeless and impoverished Oklahomans as well as mentoring at-risk, inner-city children through the program, Whiz Kids.

AT&T Oklahoma is the recipient of the for profit Dignity Award. AT&T is investing in Oklahoma communications networks, people and local communities through their environmental and philanthropic endeavors. This organization has impacted the growth of Oklahoma through local support and employment of more than 4,000 employees in 2012.

Five Casady High School students, Madison Utz, Abigail Utz, Laura Joullian, Emily Ellis and Maya Shiff, who founded SOW Love Zambia, will be awarded the student Dignity Award for their work and passion for the Zambia community. These young ladies started this organization following a mission trip to Lusaka, Zambia in the summer of 2010. To date, they have raised $74,000 to help build a five classroom school and hope to raise $64,000 more this year to build a second school for orphans.

The University of Oklahoma basketball coach Sherri Coale and assistant Jan Ross are the recipients for the individual Dignity Award. These individuals have been the inspiration behind the OU women’s basketball team visiting Haiti through the Mission of Hope organization. Sherri Coale began her career as the women’s basketball coach in 1996, and began leaving her legacy in 2003 with the creation of Sooner Stilettos, a program encouraging women to stand out in the community and kick up heels across the country.

These recipients, through their personal and professional efforts, model World Neighbors mission and are inspiring people and strengthening communities.

World Neighbors is an international development organization striving to eliminate hunger, poverty and disease in the most deprived rural villages in Asia, Africa and Latin America. World Neighbors invests in people and their communities by training and inspiring them to create their own life-changing solutions through programs that combine agriculture, literacy, water, health and environmental protection.
