The charity aims to enable children to recognise the importance of positive values and empower them to make safe choices throughout their lives. “From a young age I have been passionate about children’s rights and empowering children… I knew that I wanted to use my skills to help children.” The charity is extremely grateful to Kathryn and she continues to support the Dot Com Children’s Foundation in her new role as patron.
