WHO WE ARE

How We Got Here

While working for a major aid organization Evin visited Malawian island communities hit by Cyclone Ida in 2019. There he saw the stark lack of quality education - an unmet need and a barrier to progress and development. That experience was the incentive for School in an Envelope.

After his contract ended, Evin went back to Malawi in 2020 purely on donations from friends to test the School in an Envelope idea as a concept. Then COVID-19 hit. So he pivoted his work to respond to the pandemic instead, and has been distributing masks, soap, and healthcare education ever since.

In July 2020 the government of Ireland gifted Evin a grant for € 7,500 and even more has come in from private donations through the GoFundMe he's set up for this work.

Starting with the farthest behind first, Ulemu aims to help communities develop and implement strategies and initiatives that address unmet health needs and improve the literacy and numeracy of children in poor and rural communities.
