More Info:

Trevor Patzer was born and raised in the Wood River Valley.  He attended Hemingway Elementary and Wood River Junior High School.  Trevor received a BA from Brown University in 1996 and a Masters in Educational Administration from UVA in 2002.

For High School, Trevor was given the opportunity to attend St. Paul's School in Concord, New Hampshire by a family friend.  That gift, the gift of education, forever changed Trevor's Life and ever since the fall of 1989, Trevor has had a burning desire to help others through the gift of Education.  

In 1998, desire to help met need when Trevor traveled to Nepal for trekking and was introduced to the state of education in the small Himalayan Kingdom.  While in Nepal he recognized the need for education and was specifically introduced the to cultural and socioeconomic challenges facing girls in their quest for schooling.  At the end of that fateful trip to Nepal in 1998, Trevor started sponsoring the education of a young girl, Bindhaya Sharma.  He did not know it at the time, but the seed that was planted by his friend all those years ago with the gift of Trevor's education was taking root in Nepal.  

 "If you give a person a fish, they eat for a day.  Teach a person how to fish and they can feed their family for a lifetime."  The LSF teaches girls in Nepal how to fish.
