Our Trustee Felipe Won an MBE Award

We’ve had some great news to start off 2023! Children Change Colombia is proud to announce that our Trustee, Felipe Alviar-Baquero, has won an MBE award (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for his outstanding achievement of service to CCC as a volunteer, fundraiser and then becoming a Trustee, spanning 24 years!

Our Fundraising and Communications Coordinator Becky interviewed Felipe on what being a Trustee means to him and why he chose to become part of our organisation.

Felipe has worked in some of the most prestigious law firms in the world (Slaughter and May and Latham & Watkins). Since 2014, he’s been a director at INDECS Consulting Limited, advising international finance institutions, government and organizations on large scale infrastructure projects.

Felipe has a passion for community projects. He has worked on a number of projects including working with the International Senior Lawyers Project – United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Christian Aid and Save the Children. Since 2009 he has been a member of the board of trustees of Children Change Colombia. He has also been an ambassador for other UK charities.
