Evan Brown has worked in many domestic and international development capacities to move communities toward a more sustainable and prosperous future. He started his career attending the University of Arkansas, where he graduated with a double major in Financial Investments and Small Business Management/ Entrepreneurship. After university, Evan joined the Community Resource Group, supporting them in gaining and executing their first multi-million-dollar award to establish an inclusive wealth creation project in South Texas. At the project’s conclusion, Evan entered the US Peace Corps as an Economic Development Advisor in Lesotho, Africa. Though his primary role was as an entrepreneurship professor at a technical university, Lesotho has over 20 percent of its population living with HIV. To combat the stigma and low information prevalent in his community, Evan co-founded the Thaba Tseka Holistic Health Club (TTHC) with a local hospital and community leaders. TTHC opened access to exercise equipment, free HIV testing, and sexual health education, focusing on the community’s women and youth. Evan returned from two years in Lesotho as a Master of Public Service candidate at the Clinton School of Public Service. He became class president and worked with the Arkansas Community Foundation to help produce a roadmap to leverage grant money to create lasting change in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Evan is now a Senior Manager at Heifer International, where he leads the Proposal Design Hub, supporting the creation of strategy that acts as a catalyst for community progress toward improved income, nutrition, women’s empowerment, and earth stewardship.
