PAW Founders

Ken Smith is a committed environmentalist and former South African lawyer who now runs a successful safari business, Barefoot Safaris , out of Lilongwe.

Gaynor Asquith runs a regeneration agency, arc4 , in the UK that specialises in delivering social and economic regeneration.

Both UK and Malawi operations promote the use of a sound business approach in our work. Our founders are both business people who are working over time to secure funding for Mwabvi. We hope to complete a nationally important conservation training centre for Mwabvi. One day this will provide income to support the conservation work. But Mwabvi will never be a major destination for tourists and we need donations to survive as well!
