“The Teles Foundation is built on the philosophy that all great things have small beginnings,” says Evan Ageloff, Teles’ chief operating officer. “Teles is dedicated to improving the world by starting with our local communities, and I believe that all the great work completed in 2016 will promote global change for a more positive future.”
