FRESH was founded in 2004 by Kamau Lizwelicha, a former USAID Financial Controller, with the encouragement and advice of his USAID colleague and mentor, Kathleen LeBlanc, who is also a former USAID Financial Controller.
Their combined years of USAID service generated and strengthened their convictions that local NGOs were the key to meaningful and sustainable development. But after five years of research and thousands of interviews, they confirmed that many NGOs lacked the financial and general management expertise that was so critical to continued success. What little training assistance that was available to address those lacks often ignored the cultural differences between the West and the rest of the world. FRESH, LLC has therefore set out to design and present culturally-sensitive, regionally-specific training programs to help build financial and program-management capacities in NGOs across the developing world.
FRESH offers a wealth of experience and understanding of the complexities of the US Federal Government, of local Governments, and of other donor systems and requirements. The organization have a multinational team of consultants that largely consists of former USAID financial analysts and managers. Additionally, both their management style and team approach are culturally sensitive.
