Stella Motsi

Regional Representative for Africa

I was inspired to become a board member of Child Helpline International because I wanted to share experiences and bring the voice of the Child Helplines in my region to the international arena as well as bringing back home learning experiences and good practices from other Regions for the growth of the Region.

Being a board member and regional representative for Africa provides me with great opportunities:

– to work on the building of a strong Child Helpline network in the region.
– to improve communication among the Child Helplines in the region and
– to contribute to resource mobilisation for the Child Helplines in the continent.
