Executive Director at Friends-International
I am the Founder and Executive Director of Friends-International, an internationally acclaimed global social enterprise supporting over 90,000 marginalized children and youth each year.
With my team of 700 staff I led the expansion of the organization into 12 countries across 4 continents, developing best practice programs that provide protection and social reintegration services including access to employment for youth and family members, school reintegration for children and family conservation. To support this expansion, Friends-International is using a series of social business models providing training opportunities and financial sustainability for the organization, and has franchised its training restaurants model (the TREE Alliance).
In order to support the development of quality services for children, youth and families across the world, Friends-International has established and is powering the ChildSafe Movement. This Movement selects, trains, certifies and supports businesses, private individuals and tourists to better protect children and develops a large partnership of 60 organizations that work together to develop and coordinate best quality services.
