Julian first visited Malawi in 1997. This led him to pursue another University degree in International Studies (completed in 2016) and currently a Masters in Development Management. In 2015 he retired from a 33 year career as a Music Teacher to focus on developing the work of the charity. Julian is also Director of Khudza Mitima CIC, a company that was set up to facilitate group visits to Malawi and gap projects.
Peatry first met Julian in Malawi in 2001. They have worked together since, and Peatry co-ordinates all projects for the charity. He is Director of Mbedza Projects Support in Malawi as well as leading the work of our sister charity 'Malawian Orphans Sponsored Education Scheme'. Peatry's home is in Zomba but his second home is the UK where he has visited several times.
Nina joined the team in 2013 and along with Peatry helps coordinate our various projects. As well as liaising with community groups, chiefs and other officials, Nina supports UK visitors to Malawi and also provides guidance to those on gap projects.
Jessica is Director of Khudza Mitima CIC. In 2014 she set up our gap programme and in 2015 visited Malawi for three months with the charity Progressio. In 2017 and 2018 Jess delivered first aid training at Jali Youth Center after training with First Aid Africa in Tanzania. Jessica is our biggest fundraiser and has run a half marathon as well as a 63 mile walk.
