Deepening Our Impact
Annual Report 2017
Message from the President & CEO
The past year has been a real joy for me as I have had the privilege and opportunity to get to know our PCI staff, donors and community participants. What I have witnessed makes me even more excited about our future and the ways in which we can deepen our impact in the communities we serve.
I have known this organization is special ever since I became a consultant for PCI in Indonesia in the early 1990s. Working with street children in the early days of the HIV/AIDS epidemic there, I saw firsthand the respect and care PCI extended to at-risk youth and their families, empowering them to identify and lead their own solutions to HIV in their community.
Message from the Chairman
Now is a time of exciting growth and opportunity for PCI, especially as we welcome our new President & CEO, Carrie Hessler-Radelet.
Over the past two decades, we have seen the greatest advancements in global development ever with both the rates of extreme poverty and deaths of children under five cut in half. Your generous support to PCI played a role in this success, and there is so much more to do.

PCI said goodbye to a longtime friend and supporter, Sandra “Sandi” Hadley. Sandi served on the Board of PCI for eight years and was the creator and driving force behind PCI’s “Day at the Races,” which raised close to $500,000 over 15 years. A beloved wife, mother and grandmother, Sandi was dedicated to her family.
