the M. Night Shyamalan foundation’s leaders are self-starters who have demonstrated a deep commitment to addressing poverty and inequality in their communities.
Our leaders have been vetted by life, proving that they can persist in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. They demonstrate the qualities of humility and compassion while remaining firm in their vision and refusing to take “no” for an answer. The commitment each of our leaders has made to their communities goes beyond good intentions. Their efforts to tackle issues of poverty and inequality are shaped by research, experience, and collaboration. And they get results.
