Jill De Bourg, General Manager

Ms. De Bourg’s passion for working with youth and for youth, along with her innate desire to help effect social change, fit right in with the goals and the work of KIND- this is what drew her to the organisation. Her education in Leadership, Innovation and Entrepreneurship has been enhanced by her over 10 years’ experience working with young people across the Caribbean. Her work with an international NGO in the development sector goes hand in hand with her strong desire to make a positive difference in the world- and these are what surely make her the ideal person to lead the KIND team to continued success.

Nikita Mac Lean, Marketing & Social Media Officer

She is always eager to be a part of any act that impacts children in a positive light and she maintains that every child deserves their best shot for the future. She believes that every citizen has a responsibility to support the enrichment and development of the most disadvantaged members of society. Her aim is to connect as many people as possible with KIND's activities, in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for KIND's beneficiaries.

Ms . Calliste is indeed a ‘people-person’; she loves interacting and engaging with people, especially young people.
