Tracesmart employee helps out Ugandan Charity project
Tracesmart this week sees one of its employees travelling to Africa to help the South Wales charity, The SAFE Foundation. Louise Hewlett, Tracesmart's Communications Executive will head out to Uganda on a fact-finding mission to help progress SAFE's volunteer project, a new initiative for professional or like-minded people that are keen to get involved in third-world projects.
Just before embarking on her long journey, Louise Hewlett commented on her trip, "This is my first time in Africa, it's taken a long time to organise, but it's great that we will soon be in Uganda. The plight of these African children is incredible and shocking at times; it'll be good to see where exactly the money we have raised is invested and to be able to further research the new volunteer initiative we have launched. I'm looking forward to an exciting and rewarding trip."
Louise has worked at Tracesmart for nearly 4 years where she has helped raise the company's profile via numerous media activities. Tracesmart's primary activity in the consumer market is to provide an intuitive online facility to find relatives and friends, offering in addition, a powerful name and address search service utilising the electoral roll at the principal data source. Since its launch www.tracesmart.co.uk has grown to become one of the UK's leading web based people tracing portals.
SAFE, an acronym for Support, Aid, Fun and Education, was founded in 2005 to assist in the provision of grants and materials that could contribute to poverty relief in developing third world countries and more specifically support remote or smaller projects, often, unable to access mainstream relief funding. Louise, in her spare time, has been actively involved with the aid organisation for over four years and introduced SAFE to Mike Trezise, the people search company's Managing Director. The charity has since become one of Tracesmart's charity of choice, as part of its corporate social responsibility program.
Tracesmart's Communications Manager, Owen Roberts remarked, "It's of no surprise that Louise devotes so much of her spare time with SAFE and is very vocal and passionate about the charity. It's a great, noteworthy cause that we at Tracesmart are happy and proud to support. We wish Louise well on her travels and every success for the project."
