Welcoming Charlaine to the IT Team

A warm welcome to Charlaine Mamba Faila, who joined the Malaika team at the end of 2020 as an IT teacher! Charlaine comes with a passion for growing the role of local females into her field.

“It is a pleasure to participate in the making of modern girls on a scientific level,” she says, “having a similar or downright higher intellectual level to that of other girls their age in the world, regardless of their background.”

Charlaine, the only girl in what she describes as a wonderful family of 6 children, brings a strong background in and love for mathematics and science to the staff, including a bachelor’s degree in computer science / information systems engineering from the Protestant University of Lubumbashi. She is motivated to pass along the knowledge she has acquired throughout her academic career and also to learn and add more to own understanding.

“I intend to work there as long as possible in order to provide Congolese girls in the region with quality training and the desire to do more than me in the future despite their femininity,” she says. We’re glad to have her for the long run!
