With a heavy heart, I will be stepping down as chief executive of EducAid

After my two year tenure, I have informed the Board that I will be stepping down as chief executive in March 2017.

It has been an absolute privilege to support the growth of the organisation and under our inspirational Country Director, Miriam Mason-Sesay, I am proud to say that we have delivered on our promise of providing top quality education to the most vulnerable young people in Sierra Leone.

As I reflect on my time at EducAid I would like to thank each of our dedicated volunteers, employees and donors that over the last two years have made sure that our organisation is robust and sustainable; strengthening our governance, building our team and diversifying our funding.

I will always consider myself as part of the EducAid family and I am therefore delighted that the Board has kindly agreed to consider me as a Trustee later in 2017.

James Boardman, Chairman of EducAid:

“On behalf of the Board of Trustees I would like to thank Adrian for his unrivalled commitment and dedication to EducAid and its values, and we wish him the best of luck with his future endeavours.

Adrian leaves EducAid with a stronger platform and a wider range of public and private partners to help us achieve our goals, whist still maintaining our strong family values.

We will look to have our new CEO on board at the start of 2017 and Adrian will work alongside us up to our annual strategy day in February to ensure a smooth transition.”
