Meet The Team
Timothy J. Cameron
Founder and Executive Director
Tim spent 25 years working at senior levels in education and financial services in the USA, including running his own successful businesses. He became a recognized expert in senior management, strategic planning and development, creative problem solving and team building, and served as Chief of Staff in the United States Department of Education.
In 2013, he travelled around South East Asia. As an education expert he was distressed by the drastic inequalities in education in the countries he visited, and how this led to poverty being repeated through generations. At the same time, he began to realize how many entrepreneurs and professionals from around the world were based in the region, and were eager to do something to help tackle inequality. He realized that matching this developed talent with the undeveloped talent of South East Asia’s children might be part of the solution to the limited opportunities he had observed, and the idea for Stella’s Child was born.
Inspired, he left the corporate world, sold his possessions and moved to Bali to set up Stella’s Child with his own money. His strategic, ambitious, results driven approach saw the organization rapidly expand from working with 15 children to almost 300 just 3 years later. The network of expert volunteers who have signed up to support his vision and help mentor the children to become entrepreneurs and dynamic potential employees has grown by 200%, and include representatives from more than 20 countries across Europe, Asia and the Americas.
The Stella’s Child programs he developed and implemented have borne extraordinary results, and led to 100% of its graduates going on to find meaningful employment - with earnings exponentially higher than the national minimum wage. Driven by Tim’s passion, vision strategic thinking, management expertise and creativity, Stella’s Child has only just begun.
