Simon’s background is working with humanitarian organisations, managing community-based projects, training and equipping rural communities with income generation skills, food security management techniques and environmental hygiene knowledge, including water and sanitation procedures.


Simon expresses his vision as one of investing his own time and skills into rural communities, helping them develop solutions to address their needs and work towards self-sustained, self-reliant lifestyles, free from hunger, disease and poverty, and with access to better education.

Involvement with LNI

Simon was first introduced to the Network in 2011 by our late partner, Anacleto Ferrão, and describes his relationship as “very warm”, likening LifeLine to family.

Current Work

Simon’s current work involves advising women’s groups on income generating activities, especially in poultry and pig husbandry as well as fish farming.  His future plans focus on delivering leaders training and development programmes in rural communities, investing into people who can in turn train others in the areas of business and agricultural, with the goals of improving individual livelihood and further working towards self-sustained, self-reliant lifestyles.
