About Zithri

I'm a social entrepreneur - a person who is able to recognize opportunities, artfully mobilize people, information, and resources, and create value that would not have existed except for my efforts. As a social entrepreneur, I partner with clients to create social, educational, and economic opportunities for members of impoverished global communities.

What Folks Say About Zithri

I had the pleasure of working with Zithri and his team as they strove to realize their vision for the TAF Academy. When I was the Sr. Program Officer for Education at the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, we made a significant investment in the vision for TAF Academy.

We invested in the people who would make that vision a reality; we invested in Zithri and his group. Thanks to his hard work, today that vision is reality. Zithri is smart, dedicated, visionary, strategic, humble, personable, and so much more. He is a role model to many, and I very much enjoyed working with him. Given an opportunity I would do so again with no reservations.

I have worked with Zithri on various community service and education related projects for nearly 10 years and I must say that the breadth and depth of knowledge he has of the issues facing the community is incredible. When solving problems Zithri has the ability to provide creative, sound and innovative solutions which are based on thorough research and analysis. Zithri’s passion for working and solving issues in the community is contagious and inspires others to join the cause.
