Kim left Bain in 2003 to pursue a longstanding interest in the nonprofit sector and was part of the founding team of Agape International, a nonprofit that cares for AIDS orphans in India. Kim served as COO of Agape for seven years (at no pay) and helped grow Agape to an organization that provides care for more than 300 orphaned children in six homes, a school and a small medical facility. She helped build a committed Agape donor base and a sizable financial reserve before turning her focus to the growing arena of social entrepreneurship.

Kim has recently founded a new nonprofit organization, Ventures for Hope (VfH), which combines her passion for business and her passion for the poor. VfH’s mission is to address poverty through growing business ventures that employ those in desperate need (the BoP or bottom of the pyramid). Her experience with Agape highlighted the need for more employment opportunities for the poor. VfH currently works to grow partner nonprofit businesses through pro bono consulting and marketing.

In addition to her role on the Ventures for Hope Board, Kim also serves on the Board of Overseers of the New England Aquarium, the Goodnow Library Foundation Board, and as an Elder, Board Member and Treasurer at her church.

Kim has her MBA from Harvard and her BA in Economics from Dartmouth where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa. She has been married for 25 years and has three much loved children.
