Biographical Details

"Andy Bryant began working for the Segal Family Foundation, as an Executive Director, in October, 2010. He has worked in international development for five years in various countries in the developing world. The common link across his postings has been involvement in programming that provides self-sustaining solutions to poverty.

"Andy graduated from Syracuse University in 2007 with a Masters in Public Administration in International Development, prior to which he completed a BA in History and certificates in African Studies and Environmental Studies from Princeton University in 2003...

"In 2004-2005, Andy was a Princeton-in-Africa Fellow, working as a teacher, coach, researcher, and sometimes ambulance driver for the Tanzanian Children's Fund (TCF) in rural East Africa. Following completion of graduate school, he returned to TCF in 2006 to found its microfinance program. The program continues to expand and offers an array of financial services including small business loans, group and individual savings’ facilities, business and financial management training, and facilitation of cooperative societies. TCF attracted the attention of the Segal Family in 2008 and SFF began sponsoring both the greater TCF cause, as well as the microfinance program specifically.

"During the latter part of 2009, Andy provided strategic consulting to the Mpoma Community HIV/AIDS Initiative. The work involved identification of income generation activities appropriate for a community struggling with the ravages of HIV, as well as helping the local primary school progress toward financial self-sufficiency. The Mpoma project is supported by SFF Board Member Antoine Chiquet, and like TCF, has also come into the SFF family of partner organizations.

"Immediately prior to joining SFF, Andy was employed as a consultant by TechnoServe- a non-profit consultancy providing Business Solutions to Poverty. While at TechnoServe, Andy worked on a number of projects including development of livelihood activities for communities of Tibetan refugees living in settlements across India. " [1]
