As we hit the second anniversary of COVID-19 arriving in New York City, we are humbled by Restore’s impact and resilience. Since March 2020, we’ve served 460 survivors of trafficking and distributed $74,000 in grants for survivor-entrepreneurs. In a time of unprecedented despair, Restore focused on one thing: hope. Hope for our city. Hope for the women we serve. Hope for the future of our organization.
So as we look ahead with hope, it brings me incredible joy to share that Ida Mutoigo will join Restore NYC as its new President. With over 35 years of experience, Ida is a leading expert in international development, non-profit management, and volunteer mobilization. Prior to becoming Restore’s President, she was the first woman to serve as International Director of World Renew in Canada, a role she filled for 16 years, overseeing humanitarian assistance and community development programs in about 30 countries that changed lives for over 1 million people each year. With her strong faith, uncompromising commitment to justice work, and passion for developing teams, Ida has the unanimous support of Restore’s Board to lead our organization as we make freedom real for hundreds more survivors of trafficking.
“Ida’s heart for underserved communities was evident from the time we first met. Her deep understanding of the micro, like the individualized trauma-informed care each survivor of trafficking needs, and the macro, like the systemic barriers that keep victims in cycles of exploitation, put her in the perfect position to lead our organization.” – Beck Sullivan, Chief Program Officer
Please join us in welcoming Ida to Restore. You can reach her at email@example.com.
If you have any questions, we would be happy to follow up with you individually. On behalf of the entire Board, we thank you for your continued support.
