Houston is ready-made for business success. World-class infrastructure, welcoming business networks, and a can-do spirit among Houstonians, combined with a broad range of business resources, supports companies wishing to expand or relocate in the area. In addition, the Houston region is an undisputed global leader in international business, with ties reaching all over the globe. The 9-county region's geographic location makes it an easily-accessed portal to the global marketplace.
This will also be another international chapter working closely with the City of Houston. In year one, this chapter will focus on building relationships in SW Houston (International District) with faith-based leaders who are seeking to expand new micro-enterprises in their respective communities.
About our Regional Director and Chief Sustainability Officer: Ms. Tiffany Gui
Tiffany Gui serves a dual role as our Chief Sustainability Officer and Regional Director for the National African Business Association Texas Chapter that is currently based in Houston, Texas. She is the founder and CEO of Tiffanycare, a non-profit dedicated to empowering the homeless population in Houston and the Ivory Coast.
Growing up in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, Tiffany had the privilege of receiving almost everything a child could need. she had adequate food, clothing, shelter and was loved and cared for by her parents. She knew everyone was not as fortunate, so she longed to assist those in need. It has always been Tiffany's dream to reach out to the less fortunate, and visit the prisoners to offer them words of encouragement and prayers. Tiffany lost her mother at the age of 14. Just like many orphans, Tiffany knows how it feels to be without a mother. Like many street kids and homeless, she knows how it feels to lose everything, have no food to eat or water to drink. No one to turn to or depends on. Someday, by the grace of God, the ministry will open its own Tiffanycare's orphanage and a shelter for the homeless.
