Twenty-five years ago, Leakhéna was a little girl in distress, living in extreme poverty and violence. Meeting Christian and Marie-France des Pallières turned her life upside down: she found the hope of a better future and a loving family. Thanks to PSE, Leakhéna was able to go to school and learn a trade.
After her training, she chose to work at PSE to fight against poverty and violence against children. First as a social worker, then as Director of the Social Department and, for the last 2 years, as Deputy Director, she has just been appointed Director General on 14 August 2021.
