Many people ask why Charlene became involved in such a quest. Her family was affected by the crime of children pornography twice – two different members, two different times, two different cities, and as Charlene says, too many times. Her family member was four when neighbours used her for inappropriate activities, pictures, and videos. Her family member lived her life to the beat of her own drum, only to be killed by a drunk driver at the age of 22. Charlene began her charity in memory of her family member and in support of all victims globally. Charlene was also traumatized by the sexual assault by a teacher while on a field trip in high school when she was 15. She knows too well the life-long effects of these horrendous types of violations.
Charlene is a licensed secondary school educator, specializing in Computer Science. In addition, she has been the Computer Network Administrator in different secondary schools.
Charlene speaks at conferences and other types of gatherings. She will also prepare workshops for organizations, tailored to the needs of the organizaiton. Contact us at 01-519-854-1249 or email: email@example.com; or firstname.lastname@example.org.
