Bestone Banda - Acting Executive Director

Bestone Banda

I have always been excited about belonging to the CHIN Network. CHIN has taught me so much and I have spent most of my working days here. I joined as an information assistant way back in 2003 after which I became the Programmes officer for Knowledge Development.

I have initiated some of the projects at CHIN including the Children's Caucus, the Make IT Safe, Girl Power, the Get Real TV/ Radio Programmes and several others. Working with and under the great people at CHIN has made me what I am.
