Introducing our new Executive Director!

We’re excited to announce the appointment of Patrick Krens as our new Executive Director!

Patrick has more than 20 years of experience in the NGO world, as a senior consultant and fundraiser. He has previously worked with Terre des Hommes, KidsRights and Oxfam Novib, among others. He holds a Master’s degree in Sociology of Non-Western Societies and a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, and has a broad knowledge of human rights and specific knowledge about children’s rights.

Patrick describes his core values as “passion with a soul” and “results with a conscience”.
I feel honoured and excited in my new role as Executive Director of Child Helpline International. Children’s rights have always had a special place in my professional and personal life. Especially, the right to be heard needs all the attention it can get.

Patrick joins Child Helpline International as of the start of April 2019. We’re delighted to have him at the helm!
