Project Leader

Our project leader on location is a local Mozambican with in-depth knowledge of the community. Originally from the village of Malema, he is married and has two children. His broad knowledge of the languages he speaks (Portuguese, Makua and English) and his organisational skills are essential to the success of the projects. He is a huge help for our volunteers in communicating with the community in Nanatha, and is an amazing source of information for us on community matters. His dream is to become a teacher.
