Meet our team.​...

Everyone loves talking about themselves don't they! Actually, we just want you to feel confident supporting or partnering with us, and that's why we are telling you a bit about ourselves and why we set up Freedom from Poverty and think its an amazing charity!

Freedom from Poverty's aims, values and policies are led and managed by a group of very passionate trustees; 
Rebecca Tennant: Founder

Passionate for sharing the love of Jesus, Rebecca works full time for the Church of Scotland and has spent much of the last 10 years working in India, Africa and China. Rebecca studied her Masters in Humanitarian Studies and currently lives in Edinburgh with her sister.

Rachel Dobson: trustee

Hi, I'm on the board of directors of Freedom from Poverty. I was delighted to be asked to be part of this amazing charity as it really does help people in ways that are long term and not just a short fix. FFP really does go out there and work with those who desperately need it. I fundraise for FFP in my spare time by making crafts and partaking in various events. I offer legal advice to the charity.


Kokub Sheikh: trustee

Hi, I'm a trustee for Freedom from Poverty, and I'm happy to be supporting a charity that puts people in need at the center of its work. Development work internationally can be tricky, but also incredibly rewarding, I've worked for various international and UK based charities as a consultant and I think the more people working to combat poverty the better!
