Dr. Enderlyn founded EDI Foundation ( 501(c)(3)) in1988. Dedicated to it’s mission of international development and education through collaboration, she presented the concept of private/public partnerships to the U.S. Departments of State and Commerce. She was awarded two grants of $250,000 each, in association with another NGO, to bring those potential partners together through regional meetings in educational settings. These were held in London; Washington, D.C.; Isla Margarita,Venezuela; among others; and resulted in the establishment of offices in Prague and Moscow. Following her success, in 1992 the International Telecommunications Union invited her, through EDIF, to inaugurate private/public partnerships, beginning in Eastern Europe. She also was made responsible for the meta-analysis for Lebanon’s Restructuring and Rehabilitation. She was asked to become an official at the diplomatic level in 1993, entering into service in Geneva in January 1994. She maintained her foundation in dormant status during her years of service to the United Nations, and subsequently revived its activity in 2004.
Adapting her EDIF model to the UN, she created a series of Colloquia representing six regions, in Abidjan, Amman, Brasilia, New Delhi, St. Petersburg, and Geneva. She further initiated the first youth involvement at the GII Summit in South Africa, featuring two young scholars. Her commitment to education and youth included introducing students from the International School of Geneva to the ITU.
Dr. Enderlyn continues to create private/public partners in education and in advancing psychology globally, as well as at the United Nations.
