An established actress, Alison has directed and acted in more than 130 theatre plays, and written 12 successful plays.

Earlier this year Alison embarked on a special journey to Sri Lanka, where she visited several ChildFund projects and was united with her sponsored child. Alison would like to share her first hand experience of visiting Sri Lanka and meeting her sponsored child with you.

Alison will be joined by special guest speaker Jehan Casinader, a renowned and talented young journalist. Jehan has written for the NZ Listener and is currently working on TVNZ Close Up. Jehan has also had the wonderful experience of meeting both of his sponsored children in Sri Lanka.

You will hear fascinating insights into Sri Lankan life as well as our exciting plans for our new Kiwi funded project in the Batticaloa District, Sri Lanka.
