Our Courageous Team

'I know that the work we do matters, not only to me, but to many more people across countries. Learning many more skills as we grow, this gives me so much joy' – Clera Njobvu, Operations Manager

The heart and soul of our business is our team.  We are 11 rural Zambians who work with our British Founder, Kate. Trained in-house, we have over 39 years of snare-jewelry making experience combined.  Many of us have been with Mulberry Mongoose for over 7 years.  7 of us are women and we are all proud to have a supportive, all-female management team.
