“I first became involved with Forget Me Not Children’s Home after hearing about a grand plan to set up a home to care for some little girls in Nepal. The idea resonated with me. After attending initial meetings, my family began to sponsor one of the first arrivals. This was to be the beginning of a beautiful connection to a face, a place and a passion. I am the Chief Executive Officer of Forget Me Not overseeing projects in Nepal, Uganda and India. Many faces later, my passion continues to motivate me to make a difference to the lives of vulnerable children.”
