"As the mother of two deaf children, I have seen first-hand how Quota International changes lives. I have witnessed how our support and empowerment has truly made a difference. There are so many opportunities that never would have existed, without Quota and the women who work in service to others every day."

"In the late 90s, I focused on the construction and completion of a building with a hall for the multi-handicapped in Morong, Rizal, Philippines. We were able to raise a grand total of 1 million Phil. Pesos to build that hall. Recently, Bernadeth Rivera, a polio survivor and one of the beneficiaries of the project I ran over 15 years ago in Morong, thanked me. She is now a Special Education teacher. It was a very humbling moment that I will always cherish."

Throughout my life, my mother, the late Mary Houghton, used to say: “Every day will be a sad day for someone in the world, so be kind to everyone because you might be the only person who has been." Mum was named Quota Woman of the Year in 1961 for her work within the community. I hope that the direction she gave me has enabled me to be worthy representative of the ideals of Quota in my community."

"I am committed to strengthening Quota International every day. I have been officially recognized for my commitment through the years, but no rewards or awards can be achieved alone. Quota has given me so much recognition from many quarters, but every award I have is a victory I share with the women of Quota International who have influenced and inspired me."
