The Conrad Hilton Fund For Sisters appreciates the collaboration of Candace Scharsu, the CEO and Founder of The John Lege Project; since 2001 she has ascertained needs and affirmed project progress in an effort to improve the lives of the disadvantaged and vulnerable people of Africa.
"During my time at Dorothea Ross Foundation, we partnered with John Lege Project founder Candace Scharsu in our humanitarian work favoring smaller, self-sustaining children's projects. For 10 years we relied on Candace's knowledge, experience and advice. She provided accountability, visiting projects and assuring us our funds were at work. Her knowledge of Africa and its people was invaluable." Julie Byassee, former Administration, Grants Dept.
