The Impact of Poverty

Karin vonKrenner
Posted October 4, 2020

 

While in Australia, I worked with the indigenous tribes to find ways to bridge poverty via education. 30 members of 4 tribes attended and went back to share the event and training.

I have done direct training events around the world. Australia, Egypt, UAE, UK, USA, Asia and Europe. My directive is human rights with a focus on women and children. As a victim of domestic violence myself, I have been instrumental in creating safe spaces and places for women fleeing from around the world.  I offer legal case-by-case consulting in critical international conflict cases. My personal case was instrumental in changing international law under the Hague Convention for Kidnapping.

In between, as a single mom I have raised two amazing sons who are now taking their place in the world of human rights and protection for women and minorities.  Am super proud of them.

Hi Karin,

Wow! That's amazing. Thanks so much for sharing.

I sure could use a great legal mentor for Liluye. Please let me know if you can recommend one. I'm sort of flying blind in that area...ha:-)

Hope you have a great week!

Hello Karin,
From America to Aussie to France, you are officially a global citizen! I like how wherever you go you immerse yourself into the culture and make a difference. Good on you. Thank you for sharing your impact.

Thanks Nini, your words and support are so very kind. Stay safe and well. Hugs.

Hello, Karin,

Wow! All the while I thought you were single. I didn't know you have raised amazing sons. I am raising two young boys, too (7 and 3). It's a long road from here, but your story inspires me. How I wish I can see the world as you do. That has been a dream since I was a little girl. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. I'm encouraged.

You're doing important work. To be able to witness different cultures gives you a wider understanding of this world. Keep it up! Kudos for being an awesome mom, too!

Hi Karen,
Actually yes, I am single. Have been a single mom from very early days. It has been a curious journey experiencing the different attitudes of various countries to that state of motherhood. The hardest place was the US. Stay well and safe. Hugs.

Wow! So much love and respect for all you have gone through and overcome as a single mom. What a revelation that the US was the hardest place. We all have an ideal image when it comes to the US. HUGS, dear.
