Meet Our CEO - Guy Coles
Although education is a human right, there are millions of children around the world that don’t go to school today or only receive a poor-quality education.
During a career that took him all over the world, Guy has witnessed first-hand how so many children continue to miss out on an education and how this has limited their opportunity to realize their talents, escape the cycle of poverty and support their families.
After leaving the corporate world, Guy collaborated with friends and colleagues to launch Just for Humanity on a mission to educate and empower underserved children around the world.
The Just for Humanity team is passionate about making a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable children and believes that education is key to achieving this goal. Guy and the team are all volunteers who give their time and expertise as part of a collaborative desire to give back.
In his capacity as CEO, Guy focuses on developing the key stakeholder relationships, ensuring that Just for Humanity's grassroots education partners are growing their impact and encouraging the network of supporters to wholeheartedly participate in the team's common cause serving children globally.
