Kemi Williams

Brief info

Kemi qualified as a solicitor and barrister in Nigeria in 1992 and practised there until 1996. It is Kemi’s passion for the welfare of children that led her to retrain as a social worker. She has a certificate in counselling and holds both a Diploma and a Masters degree in Social Work from Goldsmith’s University.

Kemi’s working experience with children is broad. She was previously a social worker and has worked in local government on child protection and welfare issues and cases in the UK. Her experience covers areas such as assessing children in need, child protection, direct one-to-one work with children, counselling, and others. She has worked with children of all ages who were in various unpalatable circumstances and situations.

Apart from her work as a social worker, Kemi is also involved in many voluntary activities. She has been a volunteer in her local church for many years, working in various capacities and most recently with teenage children. Kemi’s interest in issues relating to children (especially underprivileged children) and her passion to make a difference in the lives of such children led her to found Yeshua’s Arm in 2004.

Kemi is a minister of the gospel, a fund-raiser for many good causes relating to children, including for the well-known children’s charity Genesis. She is also an entrepreneur, with interests in several businesses.
