Meet Sharlene at today’s Team Thursday!
What is your background?
I am originally from South Africa, and I am currently living in Switzerland. I have been very fortunate to travel to many different countries and interact with people of various backgrounds. I am a trained lawyer, with many years of experience in Corporate/Commercial law. I have also been actively involved in human rights, and I have supported a number of NGOs over the years.
What is your involvement with PROJECT-E?
At PROJECT-E, I am a project-based legal consultant. My main task is to assist the management board with all legal matters. This includes providing legal advice as needed, drafting and reviewing contracts, and ensuring that the organization is compliant with applicable laws and policies.
What are you passionate about?
As a South African woman, I am very much aware of the plight of young women from disadvantaged backgrounds. From a young age, I had a keen passion for human rights, particularly the rights of women and children. I support the mission of PROJECT-E fully as I believe that there is no better way to empower young women than to educate them so that they are fully independent and self-sufficient.
