Cheryl Cuthbertson Named as Children of the Nations’ Director of Sustainable Practices

    Silverdale, Wash. – May 5, 2015 – Children of the Nations (COTN) is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Cheryl Cuthbertson as its International Director of Sustainable Practices. 

      
    In this capacity, Ms. Cuthbertson will oversee all elements of COTN’s sustainable development programs in Africa and the Caribbean. This includes designing and facilitating the implementation of sustainable global practices and interventions. Ms. Cuthbertson will assist COTN’s overseas staff with their abilities to endure with increasing independence with specific projects in the following areas: water, agriculture, sanitation, renewable energy, technology, and microfinance.
     
    “Cheryl Cuthbertson brings a wealth of understanding and experience both in the professional and international development worlds,” said Children of the Nations CEO Chris Clark. “She brings Children of the Nations great expertise in helping communities care for themselves. Our children will learn sustainability solutions to help their communities and nations. As COTN works with a large population of destitute children, including orphans, it is vital that each child learns not only how to feed themselves and take care of themselves holistically, but also learns to provide financially for themselves in order that they would never need to find a sponsor for their own children.”
     
    Ms. Cuthbertson is committed to living her life for Christ and being a servant leader. She has a work history that includes more than 25 years of Fortune 500 experience in management, strategic alliances, marketing, and business development. Although most of her career has been in the private sector, she also has more than 20 years serving Christ in sustainable community development, urban ministry, and global missions. She is currently pursuing a master’s degree in theology at Fuller Theological Seminary. She is also a US Navy Veteran.
