BRINGING & KEEPING FAMILIES TOGETHER
Lois Lindley is a London based Chartered Accountant after qualifying from The University of Manchester with a Chemistry degree. In 2013 Lois spent four weeks volunteering in orphanages in Sri Lanka. She was overwhelmed and saddened by the conditions and experiences the children faced there and wanted to go back or do something further to help the children of Sri Lanka.
"In 2018, I was keen to find a voluntary post and could not believe it when I came across TFT, an organization looking to bring change and bring children outside of these orphanages and into loving homes. I knew I wanted to be a part of TFT at the outset."
