NAAAP Member Spotlight
Member: Rony Delgarde
Meet our July NAAAP Member Spotlight Rony Delgarde. Rony comes to us with an extensive educational background beginning in his native country, Haiti, and most recently received his MBA from Strayer University. Rony is the Founder and the current President of Global Paint for Charity, a non-profit organization that collects and donates paint to developing countries like Kenya, Mexico, Ghana and Haiti. Rony recently became a NAAAP member but has been attending NAAAP Atlanta events for three years. He most enjoys the networking events where he can connect with business professionals and corporate leaders and appreciates that each member, regardless of their cultural background, is encouraged to pursue their interests and learn from one another in a positive and respectful atmosphere. In additon to his work with his own charity, Rony is also involved with other organizations including CARE International, United Way, Habitat for Humanity, The World Affairs Council of Atlanta and The Gwinnett Public School's Community Program. His next big project will take him to Malabo, Equatorial Guinea from August 20-25th to renovate an orphanage center and a basketball court for 800 orphans in Malabo. Rony would like to invite everyone to attend the N3 July event and help GPC reach their goal to recycle 20,000 gallons of paint in order to continue their work in Haiti. Please bring your leftover paint and recycle them to beautify under-served communities for those affected by the earthquake that killed over 200,000 people and left million others homeless in the country since 2010. For more information, or if you would like to get involved please visit www.globalpaints.org or like GPC on facebook www.facebook.com/globalpaints .
Interesting Member Fact: Rony had lived in three different countries and speaks four languages. Through his work with Global Paint for Charity, he has traveled to 18 different countries and he considers himself a citizen of the World. I think we can all agree with that!
