John was previously a volunteer at Chaddy Mission and made an immediate connection with Geoffrey and his work. He continued to volunteer and provide support as much as he could until Chaddy Mission (Kenya) was founded in 2017. John is co-founder and Chair of our UK registered charity. John tirelessly fundraises for donations and is about to take on the Pennine Way Challenge to raise funds.
Jenny first travelled to Kenya as a volunteer in 2012. After spending 10 days with Geoffrey at Chaddy Mission, she knew this was an organisation she wanted to do more to support. Jenny supported the school through volunteering and fundraising up until the creation of the charity. Jenny is co-founder and Vice-Chair of Chaddy Mission (Kenya). Jenny also created and runs the Chaddy Mission website.
We also have our amazing trustees Zoe and Lucy. Zoe provides us with all the support to run our social media sites and creates lots of fundraising opportunities. Lucy is a valuable source of knowledge for us as she is Kenyan herself and works with us in the UK to help support Chaddy Mission.
Pastor Geoffrey is the founder of Chaddy Mission. Geoffrey was one of nine children brought up by his Mother. As a child he was assisted by a Pastor to get an education, so as he grew older he decided that he wanted to pay back to the society he grew up in and help others receive an education just as he did. Geoffrey strongly believes that education is the key to success. Through Chaddy Mission he aims to transform his community through education and reduce the number of street children.
