Our people

Lively Minds is a partnership between Lively Minds UK, Lively Minds Ghana and Lively Minds Uganda. 


The organisations are separate but linked entities: all sharing the same vision, mission and values.

We have two expert field teams in Ghana led by a Country Director: one in Tamale (Northern Region) and one in Bolga (Upper East Region).

Our field staff are responsible for liaising with and building the skills of Ghana Education Service to train teachers and monitor the programme, plus a dedicated Quality and Learning Manager, IT and administrative staff. 

Our Uganda team is based in Jinja in the Eastern region. The team is led by Country Director, Jennifer Elms, and supported by programme staff and an administrative officer.

Our small international team is responsible for fundraising and finance; supporting, developing and evaluating the programme;

programme delivery; building the capacity of all 3 organisations.  


Our work is supported and governed by our Board of Trustees.

Our senior staff are based in Ghana, Uganda, the United Kingdom, Kenya and Canada.

Each in-country team is led by a Country Director, supported by regional managers.

We are fortunate to have a fantastic Board of Trustees from a range of backgrounds. They bring a wealth of knowledge about education, childhood development, business, and strategy.
