About the trainer
Lucy graduated from Royal Holloway University of London in 2003. She worked at Marie Curie Cancer Care and FSID for three years before travelling to Africa in 2006. While in Africa she decided to volunteer at an orphanage for four months. It was her experience there that prompted her to found Msizi Africa, a charity providing food and shelter for children in Africa. Starting with the original fifty children she met at her orphanage, she has expanded the charity which now cares for over 1,000 children.
