Eagles Wings Ambassadors

Eagles Wings works on a voluntary basis with the support of ambassadors who offer their skills free of charge to help the work of the charity.
This includes fund raising, making presentations to businesses, schools and churches and promoting current projects within their sphere of influence.

The following people currently represent Eagles Wings and all have travelled to one or more international projects and seen the work of the charity first hand.

Sharon Oliver
Sharon uses her wealth of experience, as a former UK registered nurse, to deliver training seminars and teaching sessions on health issues in both Kenya and Uganda.

She speaks forthrightly on topics such as having a baby, birth control, the menopause, raising children and family health.

In many remote areas where Eagles Wings is present working in rural communities, Sharon will speak to ladies leaders about the need to teach the next generation how to parent responsibly and show a lead in embracing health guidelines that may even be contrary to local tradition.

Sharon finds the Thare Machi training DVDs very helpful as discussion starters on such subjects as healthy eating, hygiene, high blood pressure and living with and caring for someone with HIV.

Sharon has been instrumental in pressing for a much needed maternity clinic to be built in Nebbi, North West Uganda after her visits there.

Tina Jegede
Tina is matron of the Whittington Hospital, Highgate, London, responsible for elderly care, and is a former midwife. She has always had a vision for maternity care in the Third World and has been a driving force behind the Nebbi maternity clinic.

Tina will be making her second trip to Nebbi, Uganda with ambassador Sharon Oliver and will be holding clinics and training birth attendants.

Tina is a primary mover in raising funds and awareness of the Eagles Wings maternity project in Nebbi within the Healthcare community.

Kerstin helping with the cooking in Gulu Uganda
Kerstin Meeson-Smith
Kerstin is an accountant by profession and currently works In Cambridge for a business and tax consultancy, Tyrrell & Co. She travelled a few years back to Uganda to ‘give something back’ for charity, perhaps not realising how much her skills in accountancy could contribute to many who wanted to start their own business, manage their household budget better and genuinely make a better life for themselves and their children.

Kerstin is a regular volunteer for Eagles Wings and gives up her annual holiday to travel to Uganda to conduct seminars on simple finance and to give advice on money management. Says Kerstin, “I do feel as though I’m making a difference. The work is hard but its incredibly satisfying. I’m having the time of my life !”

Phil Wright
Phil has recently become an Eagles Wings ambassador, and started his personal support by taking part in the London Duathlon 2011 (Run, bike, run) to raise funds for the Nebbi maternity clinic. He is a recruitment consultant in central London and like other ambassadors realised how privileged his standard of living is and wanted to give something back to those who are really struggling with basic necessities. With three lovely children of his own, Phil and his wife Claudia had a real heart to do what they could to make childbirth safer for young mothers and their newborns in North West Uganda.

Lucy Oliver
Before training to be a primary school teacher, Lucy worked for Eagles Wings on a part time basis promoting the work of the charity amongst local schools. Lucy was active in taking assemblies and specific inter-active lessons on life in Kenya and India using a wide selection of photos, videos and objects collected during her travels.

Lucy has visited India, Kenya and Uganda, taking part in humanitarian aid distribution and training seminars, and having fun with the many children who flocked around her.

She has arranged for a number of individuals to sponsor children in Elburgon, Kenya and Katwe, Uganda.
