As we mark Trustees Week 2023, we want to take a moment to recognise the dedication of our trustees here at Kidasha, and trustees everywhere who play a vital role in the world of charitable organisations.
Champions of Change
Trustees Week is an annual campaign dedicated to highlighting the contributions made by trustees. These individuals generously offer their time, expertise, and unwavering commitment to guide, support, and lead organisations like ours, with a shared mission to create positive change. This year’s theme of ‘Many voices. Working together. With purpose.’ rings very true to our organisation.
At Kidasha, our trustees are at the heart of our mission to empower disadvantaged children and families in Nepal. Their diverse experiences, skills, and backgrounds enrich our board, fostering innovation and opening doors to we can raise awareness and vital funds for our beneficiaries. Our trustees are not just decision-makers; they are instrumental in shaping Kidasha’s future.
As an international development charity our trustees serve as the backbone of our strategic decision-making and governance. Their commitment to our mission is essential in navigating complex global challenges. Their oversight ensures we adhere to ethical and transparent practices, enabling us to build strong relationships with donors, partners, and beneficiaries. Trustees are instrumental in charting the course for long-term sustainable impact, making them an indispensable force in for international development charities.
Each of our trustees brings a unique perspective to the table. From professionals with backgrounds in finance and philanthropy to those with deep experience in Asian equity management and global development, our board is a testament to the power of diversity and collaboration.
Shaping Brighter Futures
Kidasha’s work is all about breaking the cycle of urban poverty, providing access to education, learning and wellbeing programmes, and child protection services.
