Victor Mughogho

Eagles director; Board Secretary, Board of Governance

I joined Eagles because of my passion for social justice. I care deeply about the poor and under-privileged. That’s why I am doing the work I do. I enjoy my work most when I see change happening in the poor people we are helping, when we make a real difference in someone’s life., when we manage to put a smile back on someone who was needy and couldn't afford a smile.  The biggest challenges I face are the pressure of work, ensuring the most important things get done and lack of resources. I fail many times but I do not give up. I keep learning and trying to improve all the time. I am married to a lovely lady called Charity. She is a banker, working with Standard Bank. We have four children - Caroline, Joshua, Wezi, and Watipaso.

Cuthbert Gondwe

Church Mobilisation Manager

I joined Eagles because I am passionate about what it is doing — I see us make a difference in people’s lives. I believe God called me.I love spending time with people in the villages, discussing their issues together, getting confused together, finding solutions together and then celebrating together. The biggest challenge I face is when I find that injustice just stands in people’s way. Some situations look impossible and you have to go a long way to find the answers. I have a wife, Florence, and three children: Lumbani, Walinasi and Walisungu. We are always discussing Eagles’ issues—my family works for Eagles!

Jimmy Likagwa

Church Mobilisation Coordinator

I came to Eagles just to help out at the start. I had my own business and a family to feed, so I was reluctant to work there full-time. But when I prayed I felt real excitement about the work and being part of the team. I love people, especially working with the vulnerable. I enjoy challenging, inspiring and encouraging local leaders to help the poor. My biggest challenge is that the work is so big. It is hard to visit all the places where we are needed. I don’t have much time to rest, even at weekends. My wife, Nancy, runs a grocery stall. We have two boys and a girl: Orton, Blessing and Theodora.

Wilford Kamuona

Programmes Manager

I was one of the first consultants during the early days of Eagles, focusing on the food crisis in 2003 and church mobilisation – I’ve always had great compassion for their work. I love the approach which Eagles use in working with communities to find their own solutions to their problems which they have identified. . Eagles have built and continues to build by faith in God. When Eagles first began, I was working with communities to envision them; now I’m happy that the visions they dreamed then are a reality. I want to see Eagles work continue to grow. My biggest challenge is being so busy. I read reports from facilitators, and I hear about amazing work, but I would love to go and see on the ground! I am married to Cecilia – she is an enrolled nurse working with the Ministry for Health and Population in the Malawi Government. We have three children, Naomi, Mtamen and Takondwa.

Osborne Nyirongo

Project Coordinator

I joined Eagles Relief in 2015. I am an agriculturalist and development practitioner and love to work with the rural communities. I normally enjoy work most when l see that the interventions being implemented by Eagles Relief are transforming the lives of the rural communities. In Balaka, the area where I work, the biggest challenges is weather pattern. The district receives little rainfall and this has a negative impact on the outcome of food security interventions. I am a Christian and married to Molly.  Currently we have three sons namely Enock, Cuthbert and Favour. If God is willing, we will have a last born baby girl in June, 2018 who will be named Tryness.

Esneli Mbamba

Finance and Administration Manager

I joined Eagles because I wanted to be part of an organisation that brings change in the lives of the poor and felt I had the right qualifications to help. I enjoy so much supporting the field staff to do their work by getting funds to them and reports to the donors in good time. Having enough funds for the projects gives me great joy. My work involves bringing together data from all the other staff members to produce good financial reports – it is very challenging when this information is delayed. My husband Wellington is an Accountant at Malawi Housing Corporation. I have two girls: Alinuswe and Natasha

Trywell Khonje

Eagles Monitoring, Learning and Evaluation Officer

I am an environmental scientist. For me it’s about programmes that touch lives, where you actually see the transformation. As long as we are changing lives I want to be part of that team. Working with rural communities – that is awesome. I enjoy compiling evidence of real change— seeing us making a difference. But as my colleagues will also tell you, I love graphs—I think in graphs and I speak in graphs! I get very concerned when we are not meeting our targets...when things do not go as planned. I find it challenging when I have to chase our field officers for information. I have a lovely wife Ruth who works in the Ministry of Agriculture. We married in 2009. We have two children: Joel and Deborah.
