Lucy Buck, Founder and CEO of Child’s i Foundation
Lucy has a BA Hons in Sociology and Politics and worked at MTV post-graduation. Lucy went on to work with Endemol and other TV companies, producing successful prime time shows including Big Brother, Hell’s Kitchen and Love Island. Deciding to take a break, Lucy volunteered in a Ugandan orphanage where she witnessed the profoundly damaging effects of institutional care and decided to quit her TV career and set up Child’s i Foundation. The foundation focuses on creating change by reimagining care, rebuilding family support systems and repurposing orphanages in communities, so that every child grows up safe in a loving family. Today, Lucy leads a 90 strong team in Uganda, which works in partnership with the Ugandan Government to develop family based care, domestic adoption and social work training for the children to grow up in families, not orphanages.
Lucy was awarded the Vodafone World of Difference award in 2010 and the Clarins/YOU magazine Women of the Year award in 2012. Since 2009, Lucy has raised over £3.5 million to fund the work in Uganda.
