Our Native Leaders

SHIVPAL SHARMA (DAVID)
National Director, India

Native to the most economically challenged region of India, Shivpal leads a high-returns movement to end child abuse, promote family values, and develop rural areas. Known for targeting the most backward regions and empowering the poorest of the poor, Shivpal and his team are establishing a legacy of bringing life and hope into hopeless situations.

Shivpal has developed self-sustaining vocational training institutes, a self-supporting school, and a drama team which goes village to village teaching against alcoholism, domestic abuse, child labor, child marriage and human trafficking. He produced a movie which has trained thousands of parents how to spot traffickers. 

Shivpal and his team are dedicated to training of new leaders and to networking with a broad range of groups. Through their work, Christians, Hindus, Muslims and diverse social groups are working together to bring transformation, economic stability and education to India and beyond.

AMAR BISTA
PROJECT COORDINATOR, NEPAL

From a childhood of dodging grenades and seeing his grandfather murdered during Nepal’s civil war, Amar went on to serve his country as a freedom fighter, philanthropist and a professional soccer player all before age 26. When in 2015 WIN needed someone to deliver aid to earthquake victims, Amar braved treacherous mountain roads and delivered life-saving supplies to communities whom no other aid had reached. When 33 children were tragically trafficked for sex slavery and organ harvesting, Amar risked his life and went to their rescue. He faced off with the trafficker, got custody of the children, and returned them safely to their parents, where WIN now sponsors their education. Now he and his team are expanding to provide water systems, trafficking awareness, and leadership training throughout the nation of Nepal.

Amar is loved and honored by all who love justice, and is feared by those who promote corruption and discrimination. He is a shining example of what a difference one man can make who is willing to take a stand against long-entrenched national problems by demonstrating a life of radical honesty, self-sacrifice and love for others.

Guarav Srivastava (Pinsu)
Director, UPT Network & Lucknow Region, India

Since 2007 Gaurav has been a part of the WIN team. While completing his college studies, he was mentored by his uncle, Dr. Alok Srivastava, WIN’s founding indigenous Director in that region, and by WIN’s President Leanna. As Gaurav’s heart for the Lord and for serving his people became evident, WIN brought Gaurav on as Project Coordinator of our micro finance projects. But Gaurav demonstrated incredible gifting and wisdom in the area of management in general and soon graduated to Office Manager for the entire ministry in Lucnow Region. He accompanied Leanna on several ministry journeys including teaching in large conferences in South Korea and other areas of India.

Gaurav has a unique ability to interpret God’s Word in a way that brings out amazing truths that the rest of us never saw. He is now blossoming into a preacher and teacher of the life-giving principles of the Bible. With the graduation of Dr. Alok to heaven, the clear successor was Gaurav who has now courageously and humbly stepped up to this new and bigger role.

A strong team of leaders surround Gaurav providing office administration, book keeping and project leadership. The work in Lucknow Region includes two high quality primary schools, a children’s home, anti-trafficking awareness initiative, clean water projects, sewing centers and many other development and humanitarian initiatives. All continue to run smoothly and efficiently under Gaurav’s capable leadership.

Dr. Leanna Cinquanta

OUR PRESIDENT

Dr. Leanna Cinquanta is a philanthropist, motivational speaker, business woman, equestrian and the founder of two organizations, WIN and WIN Life, based in Colorado, USA.

Leanna remembers her father looking into her face and saying, "You can do anything you want to if you want to do it bad enough!" Her life is a testimony of this truth. Her father taught her to fly a plane when she was nine years old and her mom Kathy home-schooled her until high school. By age fourteen she had helped her parents design and build four homes. By sixteen, with a handicapped horse and very little instruction, she became the youngest rider in her region to win a national equestrian championship.

At age fifteen Leanna had a personal experience with Jesus and became a committed follower of Christ. In 1996 she went to northern India and began living directly with the native people in the small towns and villages. She subjected herself to the rigors of a developing nation including drinking putrid water from village wells and surviving on rice and lentils. Seeing her love and willingness to live like one of them, the native people gave her the name “Jyoti” saying “you brought light and hope into our difficult lives.” In 1997 Leanna founded TellAsia Ministries to share the love of Christ and to provide education and a brighter future to needy children. Today, 22 years later, that work has resulted in hundreds of thousands of lives transformed. The story is now a book titled Treasures in Dark Places.

With the founding of WIN in 2019, Leanna is following the heart of God to ignite hope, healing, and transformation across entire communities and nations.

Steve Fernalld

Director of Partnership Development

I came to know Christ as a very lost College Student, who became overwhelmed by the wonder and beauty of the Gospel of Jesus.  That wonder led me into full-time Christian work, upon graduation, and has sustained me for the past 35 years of ministry.

I was asked a few years ago, in a job interview, “what was my biggest ministry accomplishment”?  It occurred to me that seeing Jesus bring hope to a child in a very dark, desperate and hopeless situation seemed to be the most important work that I have been involved in.  I feel very privileged to be able to join the WIN family and continue to pursue this calling. 

I am also privileged to be married to a wonderful woman named Denise.  Together we have a family of five children and two grandchildren. Crystal, Candace (and her two children Sage and Phoenix), Victoria, Josh and Caroline keep us busy and are a great joy in our lives.  I also enjoy flyfishing and hikes with Denise and our Lab named Luke.
