After working in the banking and finance industry in Africa and Europe
for over 15 years, Daphne co-founded and is CEO of a social enterprise
that promotes and supports artisans, craftspeople and designers in
Africa’s creative economy.

Daphne first fell in love with Lesotho in 1992 when she spent two weeks
camping in the breath-taking Maloti-Drakensburg Mountains. She is
passionate about being a part of Africa’s development and is very proud
to have climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money to support African women
micro-entrepreneurs. Daphne is looking forward to contributing to the
transformative work of Msizi Africa.

Because of the covid 19 lockdown, we have been unable to fundraise which has resulted in a significant drop in our income. We are very sad to announce that we have to cut the number of villages we feed in from five to three, with the very painful reality that 57 children will now go without food every day. It is their only lifeline and one which we never, ever wanted to cut. We are truly sorry for the devastating impact this will have on the children.
