Meet the Team


We have a dedicated team of Trustees that run and support us. We operate with very low overheads and rely on volunteers. We have a very small team of staff (equvialent to 3 days a week in total) and a part time Manager based in Uganda.

 

We are proud to have Ellie Harrison as our Patron.
