Bonaventure Mulenga, our new partnerships manager, is a recent addition to the PEAS staff. Before joining our team, he had a varied career, working in religious organisations, information technology services, and the Diplomatic Corps. After training as a Catholic priest, he worked in electronics and information systems, before spending five years in Beijing, as Zambia’s First Secretary of Trade and Investment.

Bonaventure holds education projects close to his heart, and by working with PEAS he hopes to use his experience of international relations and government partnerships to ensure that more Zambian children can access high-quality education.

Bonaventure is a father to two young boys, and a sports fan. He hopes to complete a PhD in innovation management in the coming years.
