Meet the Londiani Team
We've been using real stories to help us show what the new Sustainable Development Goals are all about. Over on Facebook we've been sharing more about the work we do and introducing some of the people who work for Friends of Londiani.
Each of the goals relates in some way to the work we do with the money you raise. Meeting the people who work on the ground is a way of bringing that to life. If you don't already engage with us on Facebook, find our page here and like it to receive the latest updates in your newsfeed.
Introducing some of the team
Salim Koskei is supporting stock controller for Friends of Londiani in Kenya. Salim is also responsible for the BeeKeeping Apriary project at St. Kizito’s and for community BeeKeeping projects. Bees are vital to the sustainability of the planet because they are the chief pollinators of most flowering plants & trees & 60% of food crops – if we don’t have bees then we won’t have crops to eat.
