Ruth Franklin has enjoyed the wide open landscapes available in the state of Arizona since 1991. She is grateful to have explored the physical world in her work as a civil engineer and to have assisted her communities and companies as an attorney. She progressed towards the more subtle world by helping others resolve their own conflicts through her mediation services. Heather Promise has been her window into a sustainable life and she is grateful both for the community that Heather has established, but also for the opportunity to assist in the important work that SRI is doing. Through the Butterfly project we have the opportunity to give a truly perpetual gift, one that immediately helps those children we reach and that also helps all people with whom these children will engage with throughout their lifetime. Ruth hopes that through this institute she can nurture a multifaceted approach to helping humanity grow and harness their available resources, to combine these with energy efficient engineering innovations to encourage all towards their path of abundance.
