Steve Amodio

After serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Burkina Faso, Steve decided that it was the beginning and not the end of his commitment to positive change in the world. He then spent the better part of 2 decades in West Africa, partnering with both public and private sector organizations to solve problems in health, technology, education, climate change and supply chains. From the dunes of Northern Mali hunting down the last Guinee Worms for the Carter Center to the Port of Cotonou to ensure millions of dollars of investment into local Shea producing organizations, Steve has maintained his focus on solving for the barriers that have locked away autonomy and self-reliance from the indigenous people. Today he is living with his family in Chicago, but his focus remains the same.
