Steve Arbery

Steve became a Trustee of the Friends shortly after retiring from a teaching career of nearly 40 years.  He was formerly Senior Deputy at Bishop Perowne Community College in Worcester and first became involved with Masasi and Newala through the British Council’s Global Partnership Scheme link that was established between Bishop Perowne Community College and a secondary school in Masasi. Steve was elected Chairman of the Friends in January 2021.
When Steve retired he and his wife went on a holiday of a lifetime to Tanzania and Zanzibar and what they saw inspired him to try and help develop the education and lives of secondary-aged children in Tanzania. He has a particular interest in the special unit at Masasi Primary school, which has a special unit attached for blind and visually impaired pupils.
