About Me: 

Hi there! I am Charmaine or 'Charms' for short. I live in Cape Town, South Africa.

I work for a non-governmental organisation (NGO), that deals with child rights and protection issues. I am passionate about human rights issues, especially as it relates to children and how to protect and empower them, especially our girls.
I am honoured to be part of, and manage a Victim Empowerment Program (VEP) that deals with children, mostly girls, but also some boys, between the ages of 11-18 years, who have been abused, sexually exploited and/or trafficked or are at risk of such atrocities, as well as issues related to youth and Hiv/AIDS.

I am keen to learn about and exchange information, ideas and concepts with fellow World Pulse members and engage in discussions and topics that are important to me in my professional and personal work around human rights issues, NGO/NPO management and building relations between governments and state departments, within my own country, as well as, on international levels.

Looking forward to engaging with you!

My Passions: 
Human/Child Rights, Empowerment & Development issues, International Relations
My Vision for the Future: 
A world where children can be children - free of abuse, feel empowered and be the positive change in our world.
My Areas of Expertise: 
psychology, human rights issues, developmental and diversity issues
My Languages: 
English, Afrikaans, German(basic)
