Voss Foundation’s 2013 Women Helping Women honoree, Gate “Maya” Haile Samuelsson, is an international fashion model and philanthropist. In 2012, Maya and her husband, James Beard-award-winning chef Marcus Samuelsson, co-founded Three Goats, a non-profit organization committed to improving health and well-being in Ethiopia by providing sustainable access to vital and renewable resources.
Braden Summers is a New York-based photographer who documented Voss Foundation’s work in Liberia in 2012. Whether shooting celebrities for The Tony Awards, a pharma campaign for Pfizer or a lifestyle series of modern couples for MoMA, his work remains instantly recognizable with his unique, stylized treatments.
The generous support of our San Francisco community at the 2012 Women Helping Women San Francisco Luncheon contributed to the construction of 5 wells and 99 sanitation facilities, benefiting 6,300 people in the Ntontozi Manzini Region of Swaziland. We hope you will join us to make an even greater impact in 2013!
Voss Foundation is dedicated to providing access to clean water to communities in Sub-Saharan Africa and raising awareness of ongoing need in the region. We employ a unique approach that ensures local ownership and long-term sustainability through partnerships with trusted organizations on the ground, use of appropriate technology, and through systems that align environmental consideration with the diverse water needs of a community. Founded by the directors of VOSS of Norway ASA as an independent 501(c)(3) public charity in 2008, with offices in New York and Oslo, the Voss Foundation has changed the lives of over 100,000 people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Liberia, Mali, and Swaziland .
