Dr Richard Barr
Chair of Trustees
Richard is Charlene’s dad and a doctor whose job took him to Uganda in 2006 to help with HIV prevention.
It was this experience which led him to bringing the whole family there in 2008, and this was the experience which planted the seed in Charlene’s mind to build a school in Uganda.
Richard has a proven track record in managing non-profit organisations having previously established ‘Love for Life‘, a successful project which now works with over 30,000 young people in Ireland around the areas of relationship and sex.
In 2011 he left Love for Life to resume working part time as a GP with the intention of devoting more time to Charlene’s Project.
