The Mudita Foundation, a Non Profit Company (NPC), was founded in 2010. Inspired by a desire to assist children affected by drugs and alcohol, Educational Psychologist Alison Carstens set about establishing a nonprofit company. Together with Alison, 6 dedicated people came together to found the NPC. Of the original board of directors, 4 members are still with us today: Alison Carstens (CEO), Dr Liezl van Pletzen-Vos (Chairlady), Alicia Hoorn (Director) and Christo van Tubbergh* (Director) -Retired November, 2017. Together,these passionate directors steer the organisation in the direction of its goals.
