Angel of the Dump - a Story of Courageous Love | Jane Walker MBE
Jane Walker MBE describes her incredible journey from a homeless teenager to a successful social entrepreneur. Jane founded PCF (p-c-f.org), providing life changing services for child workers and innovative livelihood projects that upskill the community and recycle waste into handmade products.
In 2002, Jane Walker started two charities, one in the UK to raise funds for a charity she started in the Philippines. Jane has developed highly successful poverty reduction programs for disenfranchised communities in some of the worst slums in Manila. Following her fantastic work, she was awarded an MBE in 2009 and won the Woman of the Year UK award in 2010. When the charity established local financial support, Jane handed over the day to day management of the Philippine charity in 2015 to the local board of trustees and CEO. Jane and her team turned their attention to the UK, where Jane is the CEO for the Purple Community Fund, a charity that provides social enterprise projects for socially vulnerable people living in the UK and internationally. She continues to support and work with PCF Philippines and has expanded the international arm of the charity to work in Pakistan and Tanzania.
