About Us

Janfrie Wakim

Janfrie is a founding member and has held numerous positions on the Management Committee.  

She is constantly motivated to keep fighting issues of inequality and social justice.  Janfrie puts this down to her family background, her experience as a teacher in secondary and tertiary institutions and working in the family business.

Being a mother and a grandmother is probably also an important factor in her work to highlight the effects and long term consequences of child poverty.
