The Volunteers

Br Michael Powell was an SJAA Trustee for many years in the role of Project Coordinator until the end of 2020. SJAA is indeed fortunate that Br Michael continues with his Project Coordinator activities despite his many other committments with the Josephites. He is in frequent contact with Josephite contacts in Africa.

None of the Trustees or Volunteers of SJAA receive any remuneration for their services. Apart from the expenses of running the charity, which are minimal, 100% of any money donated is used to fund projects.
