Our Founder

Peter Tyrer - our CEO and Founder - was tragically killed in a car accident in Nairobi on 18th November 2011, whilst working on some of our projects there.

Peter inspired all those around him with his own lifelong enthusiasm and commitment to improving the lives of Africa's children, and is sorely missed by all of us who worked with him.

We know that he would have wanted the projects which he started to carry on once he had gone, and we are committed to ensuring that this happens. African Children's Fund's many and varied initiatives to support Africa's children will continue in his memory.
