We operate from two offices – one in the UK and one in Malawi. Our office in Mzuzu, in northern Malawi, is the heart of our operations, from where we manage and run all our projects. Many of the 32-strong team in Malawi are from Nkhata Bay North, the district in which we work, so this is their stomping ground – they know the landscape, the climate, and the communities better than anyone.
Our UK operations, focusing mostly on fundraising, are based in central Bristol. We’re a small team, headed up by our co-founder and Managing Director, Jo Hook.
