Ann McLaughlin, Founder and Director
Most importantly, for the last ten years, I have been accumulating resources. I am the kind of person who must know the "Big Picture" before I zero in. (You learn the usefulness of this as a counselor.) So I researched culture, history and current events for four books: Eastern Europe and Commonwealth of Independent States (the former Soviet Union), Africa, Latin America, and global future trends. This research informs what I offer you.
As a Social Worker with 25 years of experience, I am deeply committed to humanitarian work. Social
Workers have earned their reputation of knowing the
resources. I am no exception. I know hundreds of international grassroots organizations
and NGO's (non-government organizations). With nGoAbroad, I serve as a
career counselor matching your skills, interests and goals to humanitarian
needs. The creation of nGoAbroad is the integration of Ann McLaughlin,
Social Worker and my
fascination with world cultures, history,
and events. In my youth, I wanted to change the world. Now I want to enable
many people to change the world; I want to harness your talents and
contribution. It is
tremendously exciting work. I look forward to working together.
