Ms. Virginia Woods

Term:

Since June 1969

Profile:

Virginia is the Founder and Executive Director of Alliance for Children Everywhere, a Christian nonprofit organization working in Zambia Africa that establishes and operates church-based child welfare interventions, including infant survival, feeding, crisis homes, foster care, adoption advocation and schools.  In 1969, Virginia began providing emergency rescue and child care on Apache and Navajo Reservations.  From there she co-directed House of Samuel, an adoption and child placement agency in Tucson AZ.  She has facilitated international adoptions from Guatemala and Peru and assisted in the founding of a ministry for children in Guatemala that has grown into an adoption agency and orphanage serving 150 children.  In 1997 she began the current ministry in Zambia.

Leadership Statement:

There is one institution on the earth today that has the resources, the expertise, the presence and the mandate to make an immediate and lasting difference in the lives of orphans and needy children. That institution, under the direction of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, is the Church. God created each child one by one. It is our responsibility, obligation and opportunity to reach them, one by one

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Program Description:

 House of Martha Crisis Nursery The House of Martha is a "safe home" for 43 children aged 4 - 12 who are orphaned, abandoned, lost or whose families are in severe crisis. It is structured just like a typical home and family in the community. In this home orphans, abandoned children and street children in crisis, find refuge and a safe place for the healing process to begin. This temporary home is not an orphanage, but rather exists to re-unite children with a family. Because the Zambian extended family ethic continues to be strong, we are experiencing success in reincorporating our children into the community. Children who do not have extended family are placed into adoptive, foster or community group homes.  House of Moses Crisis Nursery House of Moses has sparked much interest both domestically and internationally because it is a unique model providing 24/7 nursing care for up to 40 pre-mature and high risk infants, some of who weigh less than 2 pounds on admission. Some of the babies at House of Moses have been abandoned, but most have lost their mothers, many in childbirth due in large part to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Babies are nurtured here until they are healthy enough to be returned to extended family or adopted.  Bill and Better Bryant Crisis Nursery The Bill and Bette Bryant Crisis Nursery, is located deep within one of the poorest shanty communities of Lusaka. The home has a capacity of 23 toddlers most of who are orphans or were found abandoned by police.  Milk and Medicine Program This is a supplemental feeding program for widows, grandmothers and other guardians caring for children in their homes. Current enrollment is 106 children. The Milk and Medicine fund makes gives life-saving food and medicine to infants whose mothers have died, or who, because of being infected with AIDS, cannot safely breastfeed.  Faith Works Free Education Program Faith Works Free Schools are for children who would not otherwise receive an education. Current enrollment is 1,200 children from Grades 1-7. The Faith Works program is targeted to students who live in the slums of Lusaka, the capital of Zambia. Each child receives a free nourishing lunch during the school day. The schools are housed and operated by local indigenous churches, with funding and other material support provided by Alliance for Children Everywhere.  The Helen DeVos Christian School Provides an opportunity to 300 pupils to receive quality Christian education in grades 5 - 9.

Program Long-Term Success:

We have opened the Helen DeVos Christian School for 251 boys and girls providing a middle school education giving orphans and poor children an opportunity to receive a quality Christian education.
