“As a busy executive in non-profits needing to engage audiences, I am delighted to recommend Leya. She brings exceptional energy and passion to projects, and has the special gift of elevating mundane policy and process to visionary levels. Invoking the great human rights champions of history in speech writing and team working, she brings government and public sector professionals back to the true heart of their work: transforming lives and achieving social justice.
Having seen Leya hard at work in policy development and events management, I know first hand that she will prove a significant asset to and uplifting presence in your organisation or team.”
ZOA-UK is a small volunteer-run charity that is registered in England and Wales. The founding Trustees are either Zambian, or have lived and worked there. Founded in 2006, the charity aims to enable orphans, vulnerable children and young people to fulfil their potential through education. They do this by providing school uniforms, books, fees and meals. In addition, ZOA-UK builds community schools where no state schools exist and supports school leavers to develop the skills and confidence to secure employment.

Kachere tree – Cultural significance
The Kachere is a fig tree, native to Malawi. When mature, the Kachere provides plenty of shade. In the past, this made them an ideal place for traditional Chewa Chiefs to hold court and for missionaries to teach children. For this reason, Kachere trees are a symbol of unity and carry a special status in Malawi. Custom prohibits people from cutting them down, even for firewood.
