Welcome to our blog- we hope you enjoy travelling with us as we split our time between the UK and Kenya. Our dual location is reflected in the frequency of our posts- we are normally much quieter when we are in the UK.
For many years David was senior partner in a law firm where he specialised in court advocacy, commercial leases and elderly care. He also trained and practised as a mediator and a counsellor and has an MA in Restorative Justice.
After reading Classics at UCL, Liza trained as a primary school teacher and taught Reception for several years before moving into special needs education where she spent 17 years working in MLD and SEBD schools. She is also a qualified EFL Teacher and has several years experience of hosting and teaching English to students from a number of different cultures. She too is a trained mediator.
We have both completed a Diploma in Biblical, Missiological and Inter-cultural studies.
Between 2012 and 2016, at the invitation of Bishop Dr Christopher Ruto of the Anglican Diocese of Eldoret, we lived in the North Rift of Kenya and worked with two separate initiatives there. David was mainly involved in peace building and civic education through dialogue, advocacy and grassroots events whilst Liza spent most of her time with a diocesan project called Community Based Rehabilitation which serves people with disabilities.
We are now based back in the UK and we try to return to Eldoret on a regular basis to support the work of our Kenyan colleagues and friends.
