Board of Trustees:
Ian Mitchell – Treasurer
I spent around 40 years working as a Chartered Accountant in the UK. I retired in 2012 and with my wife Denise, who had retired from secondary teaching in 2009, volunteered with BMS World Mission. My time at KISC was spent helping the local finance team and I serving on the Finance Committee. Since returning to the UK, I have liaised with Angus Douglas about setting up THEN and am happy to continue to support its work by acting as treasurer.
Most of my working life was spent teaching Geography in various Reading comprehensive schools. However, in our 50s, my wife and I decided on a change of course and, with our two daughters having grown and left home, we joined BMSWorldMission and moved to Nepal to teach at KISC in Kathmandu. We served at KISC until 2009. Being involved on the THEN Governing Board and in the many aspects of KISC’s development was a great privilege.
I was born and brought up in Kathmandu so when I had the chance to go back to Nepal to work at KISC as an adult I jumped at the chance. I spent two and a half years teaching English as a Second Language to primary students. Having also explored journalism during my time in the country, when I moved back to the UK I did a Masters in journalism and am now working as a reporter. I am honoured to become a trustee and excited to continue my relationship with KISC.
In 2014 my husband and I moved to Nepal for a year to join the wonderful KISC community. I had been working for many years in education, firstly as a primary school teacher, then teaching English as a Second Language in an Adult Learning College. In Kathmandu I worked with the team of teacher trainers in KISC Equip. Back in the UK now, I am delighted to be able to continue my relationship with KISC by serving as a trustee for THEN.
Angus is the Development Director at KISC. He is from the UK and has lived in Nepal since 2012. Before moving to Kathmandu he was a director of a commercial property investment company for 10 years.
