Upaya Social Ventures is proud to welcome Sunil “Sonny” Garg and Dipika Matthias to the organization’s Board of Directors.
“We are very excited to welcome Sonny and Dipika to Upaya and are looking forward to working together to realize great change for families living in extreme poverty,” said Kate Cochran, Upaya’s Interim Board President. “Both bring tremendous experience and insights to the organization, and I am confident their leadership will be invaluable to Upaya as it continues to grow,” Cochran said.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Board,” said Garg. “Upaya can and will make an enormous difference in the lives of those who are typically ignored and deemed to be hopeless, and I am excited to contribute in whatever small way I might be able,” said Garg.
“I’m excited to contribute to Upaya’s pioneering approach of marrying venture capital with poverty reduction as it has the potential to be a game-changer in the field of international development,” said Matthias. “I’m also excited to be part of an organization that tracks real metrics of social progress at an individual unit level – which is at the heart of the impact we are trying to make,” said Matthias.
