As an experienced business professional, I would like to transition to a career with an NGO or global organization that aims to provide services and programs that deal with poverty, food and water security or disease prevention. I would like to volunteer my time and skills to an organization to help them achieve their goals while providing me with a new opportunity to expand my skills and give me insight into how I may transfer my vast knowledge into the not for profit sector.
