Mechelle runs a charity working with women and children at risk of trafficking and sexual exploitation on the Thai-Burmese border.
Mechelle is a previous client of Kiah Consulting. We first met her in a public sector role, well on her way up the corporate ladder. But somewhere along that journey, Mechelle’s life took a dramatic turn. She found her passion in helping women and children at risk from the sexual slavery trade, and now leads her own charity, Global Alms Inc. She has given up friends, family and her own country to work with vulnerable women and children, teaching them self-defence, life and business skills to support their economic and social freedom and independence.
Mechelle is modest to self-deprecating. She told us that she wasn’t aiming to change the world. But last year she and her small team gave self-defence, life and business skills to 500 women and children at risk. She may not be changing the world but she has definitely changed the world of those 500 people.
