Angie spent a number of months independently travelling through Eastern Indonesia and was struck by the beauty of the Island of Flores, it was only after meeting Marcell that she was party to the hardships that the rural population face on a daily basis. It was this experience that spurred her into getting off the sofa and doing something that makes a difference to people’s lives. She currently works as a Marketing and Development Manager and spends what spare time she has helping with the marketing and fundraising for the Foundation.
Marcell originates from Neros village in Flores Indonesia. He has a background in project management delivering water projects, and community based activities. Marcell went on to work in the tourist industry as guide across Flores, Komodo and Rincha. He also managed a number of hotels throughout Flores, before he met Angie whilst she was travelling. He now lives in the UK and returns to project manage the Neros Foundation ventures.

Cara has travelled extensively in south east Asia and is currently settled in Bath, working in Bristol as a solicitor. Cara believes it is valuable for people to stretch their horizons beyond their immediate communities and material concerns. She hopes, with her involvement, the Neros Foundation will make a direct difference to the lives of people in need in a beautiful part of the world. Cara and all of the Neros Foundation trustees were delighted with the success of the School Toilet Project which, although small in comparison to the work of the international aid agencies, has clearly improved the quality of life of many children.
