About Us

Here at EDULIFE, we believe that education is power and we are passionate about its ability to drive long-term change. We know that Africa, despite being one of the richest sources of natural resources on the planet, is held back from developing because countries are often lacking in the skills that would enable them to move forward independently, rather than relying on multi-faceted support from overseas.

EDULIFE’s mission is to help the young people of Zambia to attain the skills and training that will empower them to change their own futures. We hope this will be a starting point to enable them to make a difference to their own communities, as well as to the future of Zambia in years to come. For us, helping them to reach their goals and take that first step is the most valuable gift we can give.

Our Team

Cathy
CathyChair of Trustees / Programmes
I was inspired by students in the UK and Zambia to set up EDULIFE to enable change through education. My past experience working in global roles within an American IT company has given me the skills and perspective required to drive the charity forward through strategic planning, teamwork but more importantly, passion to help improve the lives of young people.

Under the wing of the Operations Team, my role in the editing suite involves creating engagement through video. The power that education holds to truly change lives is exciting, and I help to produce content that conveys just that; putting together videos that will enliven our fundraisers, progress reports, and other wholesome news we have to say along the way.
