Elsbeth de Ridder

I believe children are the most vulnerable ones amongst us and it is our role to ensure they are safe, have the rights and opportunities to be educated, and have a future. That for me is the sole reason I followed my heart and passion in 2010 and moved from a successful career in commerce to international development and in particular to child focused organisations. Following a period of volunteering in South Africa, I then utilised my skills and knowledge for running a successful in-house F2F program for World Vision Australia. Eventually I transferred to the UK and set up and lead F2F in-house and agency led programs for World Vision UK and later Save the Children UK. From June 2016 onwards I was the Global F2F Fundraising Specialist for Save the Children International, supporting 25 markets where Save the Children run fundraising programs. As from November 2021 I am seconded to Save the Children Switzerland as Head of Individual Giving Fundraising.
