 Where execution

   trumps strategy

Client Showcase - Replication Stage



Literacy in Africa and Texas


Since 1996, Wings of the Dawn

International Institute for Children,

a 501c3 in Fort Worth, Texas has

shipped over 200,000 books to its 

Self-Sustaining Learning Center 

in Gambia.  


Before 2007, it was only by dim

candlelight that youth huddled

together to study and learn how

to read.  Now, they have a facility

that houses a library and reading

rooms using solar lighting where

both adults and youth are

advancing in their education.  


Progressive Replication Strategy


The key progression strategy is multi-year philanthropic partnerships.  Since 2006, Manage-2-Manage continues to work with Wings of the Dawn to outline a philanthropic plan of action that includes philanthropic alliances, business affinity programs and special event planning. 

Results & Impact


The results of our collaborative coaching are partnerships with Feed the Children, Rhythm and Band Instruments, the BOS Group, New Destiny and other individuals and organizations interested in supporting the outstanding work of this organization. Multi-year philanthropic partnerships have resulted in the ongoing receipt of funding, donated facilities, backpacks, musical instruments and educational supplies. 


Wings of the Dawn is now replicating its success using two projects:


  • Book Cafe, Fort Worth, Texas - The Book Cafe is the first replication project based in the United States.  The Cafe in located in Fort Worth, Texas and provides adults and youth in under-serviced community with opportunities to participate in theatrical and educational programs.


  • The Books Abroad Project will replicate the SSLC model throughout Africa.  It will bring mobile libraries to far-flung, rural communities (with populations of less than 10,000). This collaborative partnership effort with Firm817 will use re-engineered containers to serve as libraries for school-age children after school hours and engage communities in educational and entrepreneurial activities, such as literacy workshops implemented by local teachers and Peace Corps Volunteers.  These communities, learning together, will develop the skills necessary to bridge the gap between poverty and prosperity and build a better society for themselves and future generations of Africans.
