OUR UK TRUSTEES
Here we are...just a bunch of ordinary people trying to help an extraordinary idea - Uzima
(Uzima is Swahili for life and hope)
Joy Mowle- Chairperson
As a child I lived in different parts of Africa and I went to school in Uganda then Kenya. I visited again in 2010 which led to my support of Uzima now. I live in the West of the Isle of Wight and have 5 sons...I'm sure God knew what he was doing! I work at West Wight Sports and Community Centre and also as a dinghy-sailing instructor at Yarmouth Sailing Club. I am a Christian and attend True Vine Church in Newport.
Rachel Beasley- Secretary
I'm originally from Devon, but have lived on the Island (and loved it!) since 2002. I now live in Cowes with my husband and teenage son, and work as a freelance interpreter and translator. I attend the same church as Joy, which is where I heard about the work of Uzima.
Louise Collins - Treasurer
I am mum to four boys and have run Pottery, Cafe and Coffee businesses with my husband for 20 years after living and working in London. I live with my family on the west side of the Isle of Wight and in 2018 I had the privilege of visiting Uzima with one of my sons. I hope to use my business skills for the charity.
