About me: My name is Toni, I have one daughter, Aziza, who’s 5 and is very excited to be starting Primary School! We recently returned home to Eynsham after 8 years living in East Africa. I am lucky to have had an amazing opportunity and experience living and working alongside a local community in a small fishing village in Zanzibar. For 5 years I managed a teaching and community volunteer project, and each day we would teach English language skills to over 100 adults, and run classes in 3 local nursery schools (with children aged between 3-7 years).
Likes: Now we are back in the UK, I simply enjoy my time with Aziza, being close to my family again and catching up with good friends.
Fun fact: Last year I completed a Swim to Survive swimming instructors course in Zanzibar. The aim was for us to teach local children and women to swim breaststroke confidently, and learn essential water survival skills. It was an awesome project, led by the local community, and within 2 months we had over 30 children and women joining us regularly for lessons in the pool and sea.
