Linda Roberts - creator of Rose Charities International
Linda Roberts brought her huge experience in international project development, administration and management to Rose Charities in 2007 and almost immediately became central to its operation in developing the international charter and international board. Holding qualifications in teaching, a B.A in Politcal Science (Whittier. California), and a Masters in Social Work (Dalhousie), Linda worked in almost every aspect of project running, both overseas (Africa, Nepal, India) and in Canada itself. Linda is currently (2010) Hon. Secretary of Rose Charities International and advisor to several Rose branches, notably Canada. She also works with other charities including the Grandview and Woodlands Alliance which implements the 'Under one Umbrella Homeless Fair' every winter in East End Vancouver which is is now being emulated in many other centers.
Through innovative, self-sustaining projects and partnerships, Rose Charities supports communities to improve quality of life. We do this within a framework of volunteerism that places emphasis on results. By linking people and working together we all benefit. The Rose Charities international network of independent organizations are not-for-profit secular and non-political
