Our Story

Glyn & Janey Our Story Photo 2023_edited

Glyn and Jane met in 1996 when Glyn worked in a bank as a Training and Compliance Officer and Jane worked as an office clerk.

They were married in 1997 and went to Mombasa on honeymoon. Seeing the plight of children in Mombasa, their lack of food and education and general hunger for the Word of God, their hearts remained in Mombasa when they went home.

Words that stuck in their minds were “Can your Jesus feed me?”

They registered Education for Life as a UK Charity during 1999 and in February 2000, committed their lives to show Jesus’ love in practical ways and to care for children who had been forgotten by society.

Glyn and Jane are committed to demonstrating a different kind of  lifestyle within the whole community, in love with God and unity with each other.

In the Bible, Matthew 28: 18-20 Jesus says to his disciples,

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age”.

If these were Jesus’ parting words to His disciples before He ascended to Heaven then it must be important!


Maureen's Story

Maureen is a volunteer who coordinates our UK office. She has been part of Education for Life since it’s conception but has been involved full time since January 2003.

Maureen is a font of knowledge; if you ask her any question she can tell you the information you need; she knows many of the children too, due to being in the field in Mombasa for around 2 months each year. 

For many sponsors who have spoken to Maureen but have never seen her, you can now put a face to her name!


Marianne's Story


Marianne volunteers as the Canadian coordinator and administrator for Education for Life Society Canada in Edmonton, Alberta.


In 2015, she was transitioning out of full time ministry and wanted to get involved in a global ministry opportunity. At the same time, Glyn and Jane were looking to expand their support from Canada. Together, they were able to gather supporters together and form Education for Life Society Canada.


Marianne communicates with donors, develops and implements fundraising opportunities and supports the work being done in Mombasa in any way she can.
