Having lived abroad for a number of years, Charlene has found home back in South Africa. Her career started out at a Nursery where she was involved in Community development and charity projects in an attempt to help those in need on a more permanent basis. Then moving into the corporate arena, Charlene carried her love and passion for life into every position whilst climbing the corporate ladder to Vice President of an International firm. She has successfully built innovative partnerships with Leaders from civil society, governments and the private sector during her career. Having four children of her own, Charlene has always had a vision do more for children. This is how Global Childrens Fund was borne and instead of only a select few receiving assistance, she believes that as a global fund, we will try to assist as many children as humanly possible in gaining access to an education, improving literacy and social upliftment and thereby fostering a generation with improved knowledge to create a sustainable future. Charlene has a Post Graduate Degree.
