Global Interfaith Partnership Appoints Executive Director

Posted: Updated:

The Global Interfaith Partnership has appointed Denise Soltis executive director. She has extensive international experience and global health expertise to the organization and will provide overall leadership in support of GIP's strategic mission in the Chulaimbo region of Western Kenya. 

Soltis previously spent 16 years at Drake University in Des Moines, where she most recently served as assistant dean for community and global engagement and associate professor of pharmacy practice. She has extensive teaching experience and a background in fundraising and grant writing. 

Soltis currently serves on the board of Hillside Health Care International. She graduated with a B.S. in Pharmacy from Butler University and holds a Masters of Global Health from Northwestern University.

The overriding goal of Global Interfaith Partnership has always been a simple one: to keep vulnerable children in school and address the obstacles that might hinder their success. Beginning its 11th year, GIP is a multi-faith coalition of congregations committed to meeting the immediate and long-term needs of vulnerable children in western Kenya. Services provided include a daily lunch program for 3,500 primary school students, school tuition assistance, emergency support for those in most need, and programs specific for girls, which emphasize health education and positive relationships.
