Forget me not
Bachelor of Laws/Master of Laws
Lawyer and Griffith University lecturer Kate van Doore made headlines in 2011 when she helped rescue 39 Ugandan children from a corrupt orphanage.
The co-founder of the Forget Me Not Children’s Foundation played an integral role in closing the corrupt orphanage down, working with police and local probation officers to remove the children from the defunct children's home and employing field staff to manage resettlement and reunification with the children's families.
Forget Me Not works to remove children from corrupt residential care facilities and orphanages, reunify them with their biological families and reintegrate children back into their communities.
Kate now researches at Griffith in the area of child trafficking into orphanages for the purposes of profit, and is pursuing her doctorate in this area.
