Board of Reference

Stephen’s Children’s international Board of Reference is a group of leaders and public servants who endorse our work among the poorest of the poor. They have met Mama Maggie and seen the way we love the unloved. Stephen’s Children is governed by a board of directors in Egypt and several other countries where we raise support.
