In Heartfelt Memory of Tino Nyandoro

Our team is deeply saddened to share gut-wrenching news that Tino Nyandoro, one of our student interns, lost his life in a car accident in his home country of Zimbabwe. Tino was studying at Stanford University and had gone home for a short family visit before returning to school for the fall.

We offer our deepest condolences to Tino’s family and all those who held him close. It was clear that Tino’s life was filled with purpose and positive activity. This was noticeable even in the relatively short time he spent with our organization since June. We were all so impressed by and in awe of his deep, sincere curiosity, his graciousness, and his kind smile.

The world is certainly better because of Tino, and his example inspires us to live with even more genuine kindness, empathy, and purpose. If you would like to contribute directly to a memorial fund for Tino’s family, please contact
