In an effort to replenish the stores of energy and inspiration for our community’s most gifted leaders, the biannual Durfee Foundation Sabbatical Program offers up to six non-profit chief executives stipends and expenses to travel, reflect or otherwise renew themselves in whatever manner they propose. The Sabbatical Program recognizes that effective institutions are driven by creative people who need time off to reflect if they are to keep their organizations ahead of the curve. In addition, the Foundation is providing the opportunity for succession planning and preparation of internal staff for expanded roles in the organization that are not always available to non-profit organizations. During Margie’s sabbatical, which begins on January 3, 2017 and fully concludes on April 17, 2017, ChapCare will be led by a team of experienced senior level staff:• Mr. Sergio Bautista, Chief Deputy Director, will take over as Acting Chief Executive Officer• Dr. Iris Paiso will continue as Interim Chief Medical Officer/Chief Care Officer• Dr. David Wortham will continue in a consulting role as Medical Professional Director• Mr. Francisco Benavides, Accounting Manager, will be Interim Chief Financial Officer• Ms. Deyner Zapata, Managed Care/Contracts Director, will be Interim Chief Administrative Officer.For more than 35 years, Margaret “Margie” Martinez has served as an advocate for low-income residents of Southern California. After receiving her undergraduate degree from Occidental College and a Masters in Public Health from the University of California, Berkeley, Margie has led a variety of community-based organizations that promoted health care access and workforce development. In 1994, she was named Executive Director of Clinica Romero, a health center serving the immigrant community in downtown Los Angeles. In 1999, Margie was selected to lead ChapCare. During her seventeen year tenure, she has overseen ChapCare’s transition from a hospital-affiliated clinic to an independent nonprofit health center; she guided ChapCare’s application and designation as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC); and she directed the implementation of Electronic Health Records (EHR). She is currently developing strategies to expand ChapCare’s service delivery reach and capacity through ChapCare’s unique municipal partnership model.“I am deeply moved that the Durfee Foundation selected me for this prestigious award,” said Margie Martinez, ChapCare’s CEO, “This will give me a short time to re-charge before continuing my work at ChapCare. I am confident that during my time away our Senior Staff will continue the important work of expanding primary and specialty care access for the residents of the San Gabriel Valley.”About ChapCareCommunity Health Alliance of Pasadena (ChapCare) was founded in 1995 by a group of community residents, city officials, and health care agencies to establish primary healthcare services for low-income, uninsured residents in Pasadena.

Why the Dangotes, Danjumas, Alakijas, Atikus Should Consider Sports Philanthropy

first_imgLast Sunday, while observing events as a neighbour celebrated the birth of their new baby, I noticed a rather intriguing spectacle. About eight teenage boys gathered outside the venue uninvited and boisterously danced to the loud music, basically entertaining guests in the hope of getting served some food. Fortune smiled on them as the organisers rewarded their industry with some food and drinks. It was a rowdy session, but these young boys could dance up a storm almost oblivious of the reality of their own challenging circumstances. Watching the scene from a distance, I momentarily forgot the frustration of being forced to endure hours of noise on a day one should be resting, and wondered about how much talent these youngsters had and how easily it could all go to wasteI n a few years, the reality of compulsory bills will hit them and not a few will be heading for careers as motor park touts and other forms of menial labour. Some may become career political thugs, while others take to crime – from the petty to the deadly. Hopes of acquiring genuine work skills to feed themselves and their families are usually dim; this sort simply sees the wealth but not the sweat in how it is made. Many also feel the wealth is ill-gotten and simply are on a queue for their turn to do act. If society does not step up to engage them in a positive and respectful way, we will all be in danger soon enough. Frighteningly, our exploding population means we don’t have much time on our hands. Credible estimates show that by 2050 we may be faced with about 265m youth, with the majority of them poorly educated, poorly skilled and pretty much like the young men at the party.Sports can help change things. Those youngsters should be practicing to make their school teams to annual state or national championships in any one of a variety of sports. We have proven to be a nation with sports pedigree, and we are probably denying potentially world-beating talents a chance to make history. For decades now, our leaders have not understood what to do with sports, but then the government can use some help from the private sector. Nigerians who have a few billion naira to spend on corporate social responsibility and philanthropy should take a second look at sports and chime in for the greater good.The names listed in my headline are known to be wealthy philanthropists who have spent heavily on different schemes to help the less fortunate among us. What one hardly sees, however, is philanthropy that invests in sports, despite its ability to put people of all ages and across all socio-economic groups to productive work. While much of sports philanthropy comes from highly paid athletes giving back to society, many corporations and foundations recognise the powers of sport and invest in initiatives that promote values that sports bring to societies, like fair competition, merit, compassion, leadership, unity, resilience, healthy and disciplined living and so much more.The great thing about sports though is how it can engage millions of people both in the amateur and professional ranks. Despite only a few people ever getting to the very top of sports, sports still engage large numbers of people from very early in their lives to their twilight years. In 2012 when South Africa was thinking about its football future, then CEO of the South African Football Association (SAFA) Robin Petersen showed how football alone engaged three million people in the country. According to the Brand South Africa website, Petersen said at the time that he was “looking at new ways to fund development, so that the 330 local football associations, the 20000 clubs and the three-million players in South Africa, as well as schools, will become a breeding ground for new talent.”Nigerian philanthropists must begin to think more about developing communities around the country through sports. Establishing sports centres like football parks, tennis and basketball courts, swimming centres, can help whole communities embrace sports; and as a result work together for unity, peace and progress. Initiatives like these would reduce crime, increase consciousness for healthy living and good education, as well as enhance collaboration. They would also create jobs for coaches, officials, small businesses and especially players, who the more they play the more they want to reach the top of the sport globally.While building a hostel or administrative block in a school is great for the students, a sports centre can produce talents that influence millions of people around the world. We must work to stop our increasing army of unengaged youth from being fertile ground for political schemers and criminals. We must also stop those who never want us to forget that we are different tribes, different religions, different cultures, and different worldviews. Ask anyone about who beat Argentina 4:2 in an international football friendly on Tuesday, and the answer, delivered with pride, would be Nigeria – the diverse but inclusive country where although our tribes and tongues differ, in brotherhood we stand. Sport alone makes that possible.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
