Martha and Yona are the two longest serving team members of Ripple Africa. In fact, they worked at Mwaya Beach Lodge before it was even Ripple Africa. Now in their 50s, Martha and Yona are key members of our Mwaya team who look after our volunteers. Martha, along with her fellow cooks Fabiana and Geddess, creates scrumptious meals each evening and Yonah is head groundsman. He has a team of two, Mavutu and Songani, and together they keep the gardens looking their best and carry out maintenance works. #rippleafricafamily
Here they are back in 2003 and today. They haven’t changed a bit!
