I am honoring Kim because of her dedication to helping end hunger, poverty and injustice.

I first met Kim Behan, Executive Director at Buddhist GlobalRelief, at a White House briefing for Faith Leaders. Her friendly and warm personality immediately drew me in, and we became fast friends. 

We were thrilled when Kim agreed to become an Oxfam Sisters on the Planet Ambassador. Not only has she and Buddhist Global Relief partnered over the years with Oxfam on World Food Day and International Woman’s Day, but they have also donated over $131,800 to Oxfam partners and projects over the past 3 years.  

Like all staff at BuddhistGlobal Relief, Kim takes no salary but donates her time and expertise to the organization. She is truly dedicated to ending hunger, poverty and injustice and understands well how this vision will only be achieved by investing in women.

Kim, I am proud to honor you this International Woman’s Day!
