“Violence against women and girls has become so acute and so prevalent that it has effectively become a gender or sexual-based war. By setting up Action Breaks Silence, working initially in India but now across the world, I hope to give life-changing options to women and girls at risk and provide help and hope wherever we are asked to teach.”
Sarah is hugely experienced in the charity sector, with a particular expertise in corporate fundraising and a background in television and corporate video communications. She has worked with some leading UK charities including Mind, Make-A-Wish Foundation and London’s Air Ambulance and she will now be working with the Founder, Debi Steven, using her experience to further develop the charity’s strategy and drive the continued growth of Action Breaks Silence.
A life-long sports woman, Sarah believes in in empowering women and girls and educating boys to respect all women.
Sarah said: “I am delighted to have accepted the role of CEO of Action Breaks Silence. ABS has made great strides forward since starting its work in 2013. I am confident that the next few years will be truly exciting and that we will achieve further growth, allowing the charity to deliver more programmes and greater awareness to help break the cycle of of gender-based violence.”
