Matthew Aspegren (10ThousandWindows)
Matt is the co-founder and CEO of 10ThousandWindows, a non-profit focused on opening 10,000 windows of life-changing opportunity to survivors of violence and exploitation – currently focused on the Philippines. After living in the country for five years, he completely nationalized the first 10ThousandWindows office in May of 2014 and moved back to New York City to continue expanding the work.

As you listen, you’ll have the opportunity to learn:

  1. Why 10ThousandWindows chooses not to offer micro loans.
  2. Why employment needs to be safe, sustainable, and gainful.
  3. How the organization helps meet the needs of local businesses by providing employment training to survivors of trafficking.
