Christine Reidhead, Founder and CEO

Christine Reidhead

Ever since I was five years old I've had this dream of helping the people in Africa.  I am passionate about serving others.  I want to be a part of making this world a better place, improving children's lives and providing them with an opportunity of a better future.  This nonprofit organization provides us the platform to accomplish great things, to serve the starving African child and address the hunger in Africa.  I'm excited to guide AfrikRising to amazing heights and really make a difference in this world.
