Our next BBQ at Bunnings Artarmon is on Saturday 12th of May, 2018.
Next Meeting is on Monday the 7th of May 2018, where our Guest Speaker will be Janepher Nansubuga and Annabelle Chauncy from School for Life Foundation,based in Uganda

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.
