Meeting Tina Weiss was not by coincidence!
I believe our paths crossed because we are passionate about the same things "Changing children's lives and making their lives better"
Her love and work with children is exactly what I have been doing for over 20 years.
Her work indicates she is dedicated, passionate, and believes in caring for people in need.
Tina's work is value-driven; her programme focuses on driving change and helping to improve the lives of others.
This is my reason for partnering with Hugs and Smiles led by Tina Weiss at this time.
