Three out of the four trustees are based in Merton and are proud to support the charity’s local community.
Dr Nihara Krause, Founder and CEO of stem4 said “it is essential that we have people aboard that will help stem4 move forward and to develop in various different ways. We are a small charity with significant reach, both through our education in schools programmes, which has reached over 10,000 young people and also through Calm Harm, which currently has over 700k downloads around the world. We have enormous potential for growth and will benefit from the expansion of our board. Our new Trustees will bring great strength and expertise to the team”.
