Natasha was sponsored by The Butterfly Tree from a young age, completing High School with good results in 2015. Before and since then she has continually volunteered for both the communities and the charity. She helped at Mukuni Health Centre and she has worked with The Butterfly Tree on both malaria and HIV prevention projects.

Natasha lost both her parents when she was young and is the coordinator for our orphan sponsorship programme in Zambia, and mentors the orphans. In 2018 Natasha was sponsored to do a tailoring course in Livingstone. She has a small business making and selling uniforms to earn an income. Most recently Natasha has been making masks to provide protection against COVID-19 for medical workers and school pupils

As a founding member of ‘Catch me I’m a Butterfly Tree’, a group of young people formed by Mutsa Marau to provide workshops for HIV prevention, teenage pregnancies and alcohol abuse in schools. This group, now known as Zambezi Youth Empowerment received extensive training in coaching and mentoring, from Leah Black, to advance the workshops and provide help for the many orphans.
