Childaid Network

Foundation Council

Foundation Council with committed and competent members

The Executive Board is accompanied by an active foundation council. The personalities all have or had leading roles in business, politics and associations. They bring this experience to the support of the Foundation. They advise the Management Board on all important issues, provide contacts or insight where necessary and ensure that the annual financial statements are correct. Many of the advisory boards are also associated with Childaid Network in active campaigns.
