There is Hope is working with an incredible group of talented, passionate and devoted to the cause people. Our vision has always been to train and involve people from the local community and refugees from Dzaleka camp in the work. We want to see more enthusiastic people develop in their skills and knowledge, helping other and making a difference in the local community. At There is Hope, we aim to increase our paid staff, giving people income and dignity but we also rely on the generous contribution of our volunteers. Working with people from three content we learn a lot how to improve and develop as an organisation and as individuals. We want you to see the people behind the work of There is Hope, the beautiful faces of so many incredible good people.

Board of Trustees

Virginia Trindade

I am an administration manager for General Steel Engineering. I have been on the board of trustees for TIH since 2012. I enjoy being involved in the decisions TIH is making and seeing TIH make a significant impact on both refugees and the local community. 

Tamanda L. Chidzanja

I have been on the board of trustees for TIH since at least 2014. I am an Agribusiness Development Advisor and a farmer. I have seen growth in the projects at TIH, over the years. Lives have been changed and touched in the lives of the people where TIH operates.

Atuweni-Tupochile Juwayeyi

I am a lower working as Director General of the Financial Intelligence Authority. I have been on the Board of Trustees for There is Hope for many year. It’s a blessing to be able to influence the work of an organisation that is helping those in need. I find doing such work more meaningful than serving on board of large corporate bodies.
