Meet Angela McDermott, Project Manager!

I was only 14 years old the first time I traveled to a “third-world” country or more appropriately known as a “developing” country. I flew to Dominican Republic with a church youth group for a 2 week trip to help build the second level for a local orphanage. That trip changed my life forever. I had never worked so hard, been away from home for that long, or experienced a culture so different from my comfort zone – and I grew up in Miami! That experience ignited a fire within my heart for international service and I have been so fortunate to follow up that trip with other opportunities to Guatemala, Honduras, and Haiti.

If you have traveled, you know that the money you invest into a trip pays off in the memories and experiences you treasure forever. Sometimes the trip ends up impacting your life so significantly, that you credit it for the reason you are the way you are. 

That’s me.

Because I went on that first trip when I was 14 years old; I became passionate about serving others.

Because I became passionate about serving others; I went to college knowing I wanted to work in the nonprofit sector.

Because I knew I wanted to study nonprofits; I received a Masters of Nonprofit Management and worked for 3 charity organizations in Jacksonville, FL. One of which is consistently ranked as a top nonprofit in the country.

And because of that education and professional experience; I am thrilled to be the new Project Manager for 200 Orphanages Worldwide. My job is to support the organization so even more orphans receive safety, shelter, and sustainability with approved construction projects funded by YOU.

I am excited to be part of the team and bring my heart, education, and experience to help expand our mission. I look forward to sharing more and learning about you, our supporters, who help fund these projects that change lives every day.

Thank you for your support and taking the time to learn more about me and my love for this work.

For the Children,

Angela McDermott
