MBG are very pleased to welcome Karen Bulsara as our new part time paid Director, as of February 2016. Karen lives locally and is a governor at St John's in Marlborough. She has considerable understanding of international development, with wide ranging experience in working overseas as a consultant in that field. Most recently she has been helping to evaluate malaria programmes in Africa and Asia and has worked in Nigeria to promote private sector growth. Karen will join Caroline Harmer and the WGEC teacher study visit in Gunjur this February.

Karen says "I have been aware of MBG for some time and recognise the significant challenge ahead in securing its future after the departure of its incredibly dedicated and inspirational founder, Nick Maurice. I aim to meet with everyone involved with MBG in the coming weeks before putting together a strategy. I hope to maintain and grow the continued good work of MBG both at home in Marlborough and, of course, in Gunjur. I very much look forward to the challenge and trust that my marketing and international development experience will provide a solid foundation on which to take MBG forward into the future."

Nick Maurice's devotion to MBG has been tireless since its foundation 34 years ago, and will be maintaining his interest in the future of MBG. We will be celebrating Nick and his important contribution to MBG, the people of Marlborough, Gunjur & beyond and the field of international development later on this year.
