Tom has managed Rare Charity since December 2022.
He spent ten years in Malawi, working across a variety of contexts and sectors. This gave him a deep appreciation of the country and its many talented people. He also came to understand some of the challenges Malawians face in finishing their education and reaching their potential, and how that can sometimes act as a barrier to change within their own lives, as well as for the wider community and country.
Within his broad experience, he has managed an online tertiary education programme within a refugee camp. Through this, Tom saw the potential of education to change lives within marginalised communities. He is excited to expand Rare Charity scholarships to support positive change in tea communities in Malawi, Nepal and other parts of the world.
