School for Life Foundation

Janepher Nansubuga grew up in rural Uganda and lost her parents at 16, which meant she and her siblings had to move to live with her grandmother in Kampala.  Education there was harsh – no meals all day and beatings. Janepher decided she had to change things for her family and began working to pay for private education for herself and a sister and subsequently all her siblings. She eventually worked her way through teacher training and then started work as a teacher. She has been with School for Life since its beginnings and her outstanding approach to education has seen her develop into the role of Director of Schools.   

 

Annabelle Chauncy is a dynamic leader and social entrepreneur who started School for Life Foundation at 21 years of age with operations in Australia and Uganda.  Through her Foundation she has built a team of over 120 staff, built 3 schools in rural Uganda providing education to 680 students and outreach to more than 2,000 people.  Annabelle has overcome huge barriers including running two high performing business in 2 continents, managing cultural and gender biases, shifting mindsets , driving change and innovation and engaging staff to achieve high performance.  Annabelle is one of the youngest recipients of the Medal of the Order of Australia and is she is testament to the fact that one person can make a difference.

Eradicating Obstetric Fistula in Ethiopia

Lynne will talk about the work of Catherine & Reg Hamlin. Catherine was voted Senior Citizen of NSW for 2017.

The title of my talk is The Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation

I was born and raised in the UK. When I had graduated and gained experience as a Geography teacher I worked in Nigeria on a British development aid contract.

I migrated from the UK in 1988 with my husband and three young children.

 

I recently retired as a Geography teacher at MLC Burwood.

 

I have always taken an interest in African affairs and am passionate about development issues. I have been very privileged to volunteer at the Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation as I believe Catherine to be one of the most inspiring people that I have heard about.

Christine is the Fundraising and Marketing Manager at Odyssey House NSW (odysseyhouse.com.au) and they provide community services across Sydney for people and their families impacted by alcohol and drugs.

We find that most people do not want to talk about the impact alcohol and drugs has on their health and livelihood, and working with organisation's such as yourself, we are able to offer information and education before a worry becomes and issue
