Volunteer Spotlight

Meet Yewhna

“After earning degrees in Planning, and in Health Policy Management, I needed to find some direction before grad school.  Volunteering on an East African materialsDIRECT project over the summer was a life-changing experience!  I can hardly wait to finish my MPA and start changing the world.”


materialsDIRECT effects positive change in the lives of the world's most vulnerable people by building local economies, beginning with the people themselves. It is our core belief that outside intervention is not a long-term, sustainable solution; but, short-term, strategic investment in education, essential services, energy and access to world markets provides real opportunity.

Interested in our global consulting practice? We'd love to hear from you! Check out the number of ways to get involved.

Spread the word

If you are as passionate about one of our projects as we are, recruit support through your network.


We are a mission driven, non-profit global consulting practice.  Our work is profitable for investors, and serves other stakeholders like politicians, etc.; BUT the biggest motivation is improving people’s lives.  We rely on local awareness and support as well as the global zeitgeist.


Creating awareness of local issues that may be attractive to our NGO partners can be a lightning rod to international investment and local economic development.  If we bring our partners to your cause, it could be the spark of economic growth in your community.


Please be mindful not to use our logo or other trademarks without our permission.  Our reputation is our most precious asset, so we guard it very carefully.
