Meet Brendan “Mr Schneebly” Ribeiro

He says he teaches big people.

Brendan would love to be part of The Jetsons family who lives in a house in the sky with their pet dog, Astro. But Brendan aka Mr Schneebly is too much of a live wire for a laidback life among the clouds.

Instead, he’s blazing trails with our GIFS team as our Business Development Officer, helping make Africa a better place for us all. Air fist-pumps go down well with our swaggerific maths maverick who loves repeating the 2x table in his head throughout the day. Just don’t tell him we told you so, ok?

Meet Christina “Tigger” Jenkins

Christina would love to live in the Hundred Acre Wood with Winnie the Pooh and his friends but sadly, she doesn’t have fur, feathers or a tail.

So, Christina puts her magnetic personality and creative skills to work as the executive to the CEO. She helps create extraordinary experiences that keep her growing and learning. It’s just one of the cool things about being a GIFSter – that, and the fact that no-one bats an eyelid when Christina does random stretches and sit-ups whenever and wherever she likes. A big happy smile goes down well when meeting our Christina – but hitting the floor for push-ups or bouncing around like Tigger does the trick too!

Meet Catherine “Cathleen” Packaree

Catherine likes to say she works at a school that teaches big people. But we know Catherine I-don’t-try-on-clothes-when-out-shopping is so much more than that!

As our Programme Manager, Catherine I-would-have-called-myself-Cathleen-if-I-had-the-chance, is a true people’s person. You’ll know exactly what we mean when you meet her. She’s the kind of person you want to run up to and hug (in the days when we could hug). Which is why she fits right in with our green family!

Meet Reuben "Gary" Ingram

Reuben drives around a lot and loves meeting many new people.

He thinks he’d make a good “Gary” and would love to be adopted by The Simpsons. He also thinks Sylvester Stallone would do a great job playing him in a movie.

We know what you’re thinking: how can you go from Homer, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and Marge-with-the-big-hair to Sly-with-the-big-muscles? Well, that’s our Reuben for you: adaptable, likeable and fun. Reuben, aka Gary Simpson, is our Business Development Manager. We think he’s a pretty cool guy! You’ll think so too when you meet him – but remember to leave your Bart jokes at home!
