Support from the business and professional community enables us to make a difference in the lives of more children

The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a professional association and educator in talent management strategies, announced today that its second annual National Human Capital Summit, to be held in Phoenix March 19-21, will feature a Pre-Summit Benefit Golf Tournament on March 18 to support expansion of the Human Capital Foundation's Selamta Project in Ethiopia.

The Human Capital Foundation (HCF) is an international charitable organization that provides direct assistance programs to help AIDS orphans and children living in extreme poverty in developing countries. The Selamta (be at peace) Project includes a children's home, sponsorship and reunification programs, a clinic, and the creation of small group homes to accommodate the growing number of AIDS orphans.

Human capital development is critical to the long-term success of an expanding global economy. Corporate growth in the United States and Europe are increasingly bound to the developing workforce and consumer power of today's emerging economies. Yet many of the world's most strategic third world regions face worsening social and economic challenges that threaten their viability over the next decades.

HCI member organizations and dedicated volunteers are committed to help by providing assistance to those least able to cope, in those countries most severely impacted by AIDS and extreme poverty. HCF programs help AIDS orphans; HIV-infected and vulnerable children regain stability, health, and the love of a lifetime family. The objective is to transform those in greatest need today into a fabric of confident, educated young people who can contribute to the social and economic needs of their nation.

The Human Capital Institute underwrites operating expenses and donates 10 percent of membership fees to support the Foundation. Participation in the Benefit Golf Tournament will provide direct support for Selamta, where HCF is building a new community model to unite AIDS orphans in Ethiopia with supporting, loving in-country family homes.

"Support from the business and professional community enables us to make a difference in the lives of more children," said Carol Foster, HCF's Executive Director.

The Pre-Summit Benefit Golf Tournament begins at 12:00 p.m. MT on Sunday, March 18, and ends with a Post-Tournament Silent Auction & Awards Ceremony that will take place from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. MT.

For Benefit Golf Tournament sponsorship information, please contact Nigel Leeming, Chief Development Officer, at 1-866-538-1909. Questions about the Selmata Project and other Human Capital Foundation efforts in Ethiopia, including other ways organizations can provide assistance, should be directed to Carol Foster at 802-299-2922.
