SAFCEI bids farewell to Kate Davies

  • Published:

We want to pay special tribute to Kate Davies who is retiring this month after over fifteen years of service. Our gratitude to Kate cannot be overstated, from her contributions to SAFCEI's visionary beginnings, as a multi-faith environmental institution, to her guidance and depth of knowledge in recent years.

SAFCEI was founded from both the experiences that Kate had as an environmental educator and person of faith, and from those of Bishop Geoff Davies, a faith leader who cares passionately about the environment, and her husband. Kate and Geoff brought together the first multi-faith founding membership who shared their concerns in a meeting at Hartebeestpoort, and SAFCEI was born.

We will miss Kate's presence at SAFCEI and wish her all the very best in her retirement. As SAFCEI co-founders and Patron, Kate and Geoff will continue to play an important part in the work of SAFCEI and in fostering care for living Earth.
