Board Of Directors

At the One World Literacy Foundation the Board of Directors provides a number of important things to a nonprofit. The first, perhaps, is technical expertise, which is why most Boards usually contain members representing all segments of the economy, i.e., lawyers, accountants, healthcare professionals, insurance executives, etc. Ideally, a Board is there to supervise and compliment the actually running of the organization or directly dealing with day-to-day events and circumstances--what may be called "the small picture. OWL Board of Directors also provides a broad and general management guidance-in other words, decisions dealing with the "big picture”. For OWL, this is making sure that all in need have the necessary tools to learn how to read.
