Two new team members at DAKTARI!
We are happy to welcome Pat and Tjaša in our team!
Pat is our new Outreach Manager. She is 57 years old and is coming from USA where she was a retired magazine publisher. She is staying with us for at least one year and will manage the Eco Clubs and the Job Hunting Program.
After living in Eastern AAfrica 27 years ago, Pat always wanted to return here. Her passions for animals and children made DAKTARI a natural fit. She is thrilled to be here to work with both.
Tjaša is our new Fundraising Manager. She is 31 years old and is coming from Slovenia where she worked as an advertising copywriter. She is staying with us for six month and will help with the fundraising and sponsorship tasks.
Tjaša has some volunteer experience last year in turtle rescue and teaching english to kids. She never came to South Africa and this volunteering was the perfect match between children and animals.
We are very excited to have Pat and Tjaša in the DAKTARI team and we hope they have a great time here in the coming months!
