Sande - Vice Chairman & Outreach Manager

Sande's parents died when he was 16. He didn't get to finish school because he had to look after his sister. A short while after, he had a son, unfortunately his son's mother also died soon after. Sande attended the orphanage with his sister after their parents' death. He then became one of the young men helping at the orphanage trying to raise donations and eventually became Director, this role has now been transferred to Menya.

Sande's drive for helping the orphaned children is rooted in his own experience of being an orphan.
