The San Francisco-based Maybach Family Foundation, as a co-sponsor of the 10th annual Milken Institute Global Conference, held April 22-25 in Los Angeles, will bring young doctors from Uganda to meet with some of the world's top innovators to highlight the significant impact of global mentoring efforts.
The Maybach Family Foundation provides extraordinarily talented young adults from disadvantaged circumstances the opportunity to mentor with distinguished global leaders, in order to make a difference in their lives and in the world. At the Milken Institute, potential mentors will witness first-hand how mentoring transformed the lives of Ugandan doctors and their communities.
Dr. Dieter Zetsche, CEO of DaimlerChrysler said, "We are very pleased to be working with the Maybach Family Foundation to provide high level mentoring opportunities to exceptionally talented young leaders around the globe. Our company understands the value and importance of corporate responsibility and supporting the Maybach Family Foundation combines our unique heritage of furthering excellence and our shared vision for improving society."
The Maybach Family Foundation founded upon the humble origins of Wilhelm and Karl Maybach, builds on a legacy of engineering, invention and design that spanned the 20th Century, and played a pivotal role in the development of the automotive era. Given the unique heritage of the Maybach name - for 100 years synonymous with the highest values of excellence and quality - Maybach Family Foundation will work with committed global leaders to facilitate their mentoring of talented youth.
Klaus Nesser, CEO of Maybach Brand, DaimlerChrysler remarked, "the Maybach Brand is built upon a long legacy of excellence, not only in the automotive industry, but also in mentoring extraordinary talent - as Wilhelm Maybach, the brand's founder himself was mentored by Gottlieb Damiler to become the constructor of the first Mercedes automobile and later the so-called 'king of engineers'. The Maybach Brand is proud to support the Maybach Family Foundation as the primary partner in their efforts to provide creative solutions to the world's problems through a global Mentoring Program of aspiring young leaders. The Foundation's approach to social responsibility coincides with our commitment to support excellence and is therefore firmly grounded in the very core of our brand."
The Maybach Family Foundation is collaborating with the University of California, San Francisco to implement a mentoring program with an HIV Training and Research facility in Uganda. As part of this effort to provide key mentoring and educational opportunities, the Foundation has brought two promising young doctors to the Milken Institute Global Conference.
Just three years ago, Dr. Irene Andia-Biraro and Dr. Dennis Nansera graduated from medical school in Kampala, Uganda. Currently, Dr. Andia-Biraro runs 18 HIV hospitals and five clinics. Dr. Nansera built an HIV facility for over 1,000 infants and children and is now setting up an integrated HIV/tuberculosis clinic for 1,500 patients.
Mr. Ulrich Schmid-Maybach, founder of the Maybach Family Foundation, will personally introduce the Ugandan physicians to participants of the Milken Institute Global Conference. "The healthcare crisis in developing countries demands investment in local leadership," he commented. "These remarkable Ugandans are a prime example of the potential of young leaders - they were born into the HIV-plight, they survived it and they have become dedicated to solving it. We can utilize our resources to help them to emerge as leaders in their own right."
During the Conference, Mr. Schmid-Maybach will conduct a strategic outreach for potential mentoring opportunities between the Maybach Family Foundation and the Milken Institute Leadership Program and Associates.
Mr. Schmid-Maybach and these outstanding doctors will open one of the Global Conference evening sessions on Monday evening.
