|Louise Anita Williams:
Throughout her life Louise has studied the lives of numerous people. Of these, Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Teresa have become her two role models. They each had one thing in common – to serve the good of the people.
Louise knows she cannot fill the shoes of either of these individuals, but this does not stop her.
She willingly gave up the comforts of living in the USA to serve the children in India. To her, nothing is more important than to make sure the children receive love, homes, family, nutritious meals and education so they will one day grow into tomorrow's independent self-sufficient adults who may be able to give back to society.
This is Louise’s heart.
Before devoting fulltime to the life of service, Louise had a successful business career in the field of sales, marketing and advertising. At the time of leaving the business world Louise was an international sales and marketing consultant with clients in India and the USA. While director of public relations for a $55 million direct sales company, she was responsible for public and government relations throughout the USA.
As founder and CEO of a full service advertising and sales promotions company, she directed the development of marketing campaigns for Fortune 500 companies including Walt Disney Productions; Mitsubishi Electric; American Isuzu Motors International; City of Los Angeles, Department of Airports; as well as smaller business-to-business clients. Her company developed award-winning campaigns including a public service advertising campaign for Childhelp USA, which got national recognition.
Throughout her career she has always been active within the community. Louise served as a volunteer with Childhelp USA and has been on several Boards of Directors including: YMCA of Orange, CA and Sales and Marketing Executives of Orange County. In addition, Louise was appointed and served as a Commissioner for the Commission on the Status of Women in Orange County, CA. She was an active member of TiE (The Indus Entrepreneurs) of Southern California. She served on President Ronald Reagan’s President Task Force and has won numerous awards for her community work.
As an adjunct professor, Louise taught Public Relations at Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, CA.
Louise was born in Portland, Oregon in the USA and raised in southern California.
As a result of the active role in social service by his family members living in India, Ketan is one of the lucky individuals who not only knew Mother Teresa, but supported her work as well.
Ketan N. Parekh:
Having three children, Ketan knows and understands the value of the role a parent plays in nurturing children’s lives.
Ketan was fortunate to be born and raised in a loving affluent family that believes in reaching out to the less fortunate. Although raised in the USA since the age of 15, he continually travels to India.
He has seen first hand what happens to abandoned and orphaned children living on the street. According to Ketan, the conditions in India for abandoned children are at least 100 times worse than in the USA. This, as well as being a parent, is what motivated him to take an active role as one of the founders of Love Humanity.
In his business life, Ketan utilizes his decades of rock-solid management experience in the technology arena to serve as president and CEO of two IT companies: NETINFO, Inc and Fosterconnect. Under Ketan’s dynamic leadership, NETINFO helps its clients fundamentally change the way they do business. In addition to driving the company’s strategic direction, his primary focus is to enable NETINFO’s clients to fully capitalize on the incredible opportunities presented by the digital economy.
Recently, Ketan combined his love for children and his technology acumen to build a software company, Fosterconnect, dedicated to providing data management solutions for the Foster Care Industry. Fosterconnect is an ASP solution, which empowers social workers to spend more time focusing on providing care to children instead of being over-burdened with paperwork.
Prior to leading NETINFO, Ketan was directly responsible for building Forbes Computer Group into a $20 Million dollar systems integrator. Clients included such high profile names as Rockwell, Sony, JPL and Catalina Marketing.
Ketan is a charter member of TIE (The Indus Entrepreneurs). He holds a Masters degree in International management from Thunderbird and Oxford University.
Ketan was born in India and migrated along with his parents and siblings to the USA. He is married, has three children and lives in southern, California.
