Who we are…

We are a small team of individuals committed to supporting and developing people. From Business Managers, Social Workers, Lecturers, Authors, Carers, Entrepreneurs and Activists, we all came together as a result of Nyasha’s vision of enriching the lives of children and young adults across the world. A few years on, and we are happy to see our work having such a positive impact on hundreds of people.
