While designer Katherine Yoder's parents were living in Nepal, they befriended orphans living behind their house. With sponsorship from friends and EF employees, the children were installed at an orphanage run by the Umbrella Foundation. “People were so excited and generous,” says Katherine. “Instead of getting flowers as a birthday present from the company, they'd ask to have that money donated.”
