The Loudoun Literacy Council’s board of directors has appointed Nikki Daruwala as the nonprofit organization’s interim executive director.
Board President Lise Rybowski said Daruwala, of NDPoint Strategies, will focus on: positioning the organization to better serve its stakeholders, from students and families to volunteers and donors; identifying and implementing best practices in operations and governance; and working with the board to ensure the organization’s financial stability.
“Nikki is an amazing professional with years of exceptional nonprofit leadership and operational skills,” Rybowski stated. “The Loudoun Literacy Council is lucky to have her on board to move the organization forward as we enter our 38th year of service to county residents who are trying to improve their English language proficiency and our 20th year of providing literacy programs to economically disadvantaged children.”
Daruwala steps in after the resignation of Sarah Ali, who had served as executive director for six months. She is now working with Saint Gabriel’s Episcopal Church on its Educando con Amor Family Literacy Program.
