Matthew Swerdloff and his wife Elisa Gold return to RadioRotary to tell about the many activities and events that the Maya Gold Foundation has been sponsoring in the past couple of years and into the future. They created the Maya Gold Foundation in honor of their daughter Maya who committed suicide at the age of 15, but the Foundation is not primarily involved with suicide prevention. Instead, they work with youth to help them access their inner wisdom and realize their dreams—suicide prevention is a side-effect. Because Maya had become involved in efforts to stop human trafficking in Nepal, the Foundation has developed a close relation with groups in Nepal, including the Kathmandu Rotary Clubs. Both youth and adult trips to Nepal work with Nepalese nonprofit organizations that support youth. Back in the Hudson Valley, the foundation sponsors empowering events of all kinds, including film screenings, live theater, improvisations, and panel discussions in various locations. The Foundation also offers grants and scholarships.
