Chetachi Ecton, the CEO & Founder on Her Mission for the When In Need Foundation

Meeting an outstanding leader is a definitely pleasure. Also, while listening to and learning what makes someone exceptional is another thing. Chetachi Ecton is indeed an individual determined to do her part in changing the world as much as possible through her work with the When In Need Foundation.

The When In Need Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization created by a single mom named Chetachi Ecton. As a Nigerian immigrant to the U.S., Ecton knew first-hand what it means to be in need. After finding success through entrepreneurship, Ecton would often see devastating need as she traveled around the world.

Ecton started When In Need Foundation to show people the difference one person can make. In fact, the name of the foundation was a suggestion from her daughter.  Echton says to people wanting to know about to the foundation "To come and volunteer so they can see the work the foundation is doing."  She also goes onto say "It is important to reach out to the children.  There are have been a few students we have sponsored with scholarships." 

With When In Need Foundation, Ecton has successfully completed several projects in dozens of countries around the world through the nonprofit’s Mission of Mercy outreach program. Mission of Mercy includes: medical missions, agricultural farming, water projects, and shoe projects.

In the U.S., When In Need Foundation does various community outreach initiatives in the Philadelphia and New York City areas. It also provides scholarships to young people in need who are entering post-secondary education. Ecton has funded the foundation through her own investment and fundraising efforts, along with a small team of volunteers.

Before their departure on Nov 15, 2016 the mission received media coverage from NY1 News and NBC Philadelphia.  As a result, more than 5000 people treated onsite for common illnesses such as: malaria diarrhea, deworming, high blood pressure, and diabetes, 11 hospitalized for severe illness and hospital bills paid by WIN Foundation and 2,723 pairs of eye glasses have been distributed.

    I think Canada has risen so much in my eyes, due to Justin Trudeau. And yet, every visit I've had to Canada has been absolutely lovely. I had one of the best bowl of Pho when I visited Toronto many years ago. And more recently, I visited Montreal, where I had Poutine for the first time and it was incredible!

    Why hasn't the U.S. ratify CEDAW yet?

    President Carter sent CEDAW to the U.S. Senate for advice and consent in 1980. It remains in the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. The Senate has held hearings on CEDAW five times in the past 25 years but failed each time to bring the treaty to a vote on the floor. Why?
    Conservative organizations, such as the Home School Legal Defense Associationand Concerned Women for America, vehemently oppose the ratification of all human rights treaties. They insist that human rights treaties violate American sovereignty. Thirty-eight Republican senators demonstrated this last December, when they refused to join their more moderate colleagues in ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
    CEDAW establishes the moral, civic and political equality of women and protects women's right to be free from discrimination and violence. Thanks to CEDAW, these values have diffused around the world. 
    Conservative critics are wrong when they claim that CEDAW reflects radical feminist views. In fact, a Republican woman, Nixon appointee Patricia Hutar, persuaded the United Nations to draft CEDAW. On January 30, 1974, President Nixon called for the U.S. government to commemorate International Women's Year at all levels.

    Has anyone used an air fryer?

    At first glance, deep fryers and air fryers seem quite similar. Both give regular food (such as veggies or pieces of meat) a delicious taste and crunchy exterior. However, the method a deep fryer uses (dunking food into a large amount of hot oil) is much different from that of an air fryer, which coats food with a little bit of oil then blasts it with hot air. If you love traditional fried food, the deep fryer could be your best bet. If you’re a bit more health conscious and want to achieve similar results without entirely giving up that distinctive fried taste and texture, an air fryer could be the optimal choice.
