Meet the team

Our team is made up of people who want to make a difference

Each one is passionate about seeing children in Africa live in healthy, thriving communities.

Our volunteer board members come from different walks of life – we have an engineer, accountant, financial advisor, company director and business consultant. We use our professional skills to mentor and equip our partner organisations in Africa. Our very hands-on, personal approach ensures there is accountability and transparency on the ground.
