Jane Corboy, Co-Founder

In 1995 Jane Corboy, wife of the first EU Ambassador to Georgia visited Kaspi State Orphanage and was horrified to see disabled children so neglected.  Jane, who comes from a family in Ireland commited to care in the community, and has a background in marketing and public relations, took an immediate interest in the plight of the children in Kaspi and has since made a lifelong commitment to creating services in Georgia for disadvantaged children and young adults with special needs.

From that time and since leaving Georgia in 1999, Jane has established a solid board of Trustees in Ireland and the UK and has put in place a international network of support including the charity's patron, Mary Robinson former President of Ireland and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
In December 2008 Jane was honoured to receive an award on behalf of the charity as International Philanthropist of the year from The Community Foundation for Ireland.  The award acknowledged ten years of hard work and dedication of all involved - staff in Georgia, professional consultants, supporters, volunteers and donors world wide and a commitment to going forward.  In 2012 the National University of Ireland decided to award Jane an honorary doctorate of Laws.
