Zavalney has a Masters in Organization Development and 15 years of experience in community development, facilitation, sustainability, and event management. She is the founder of Aranya Solutions.
“The inspiration for developing a nonprofit came during my international travels. Aranya means bountiful forest in Sanskirt, signifying plentitude, generosity, resources, and prosperity. I saw small children walking 90 minutes each way to go to school, often with brutal weather. They clearly need a school in their neighborhood. As I talked with the locals, it became clear that they need an intermediary between the large Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), and local level projects and activities, and this is where Aranya Solutions fits best, by understanding the local needs and being a bridge to resources and organizational support.”
