Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love


Michelle is a Chartered Accountant who started her career in the private sector working for one of the ‘Big Four’ firms. Her passion to make a difference eventually lured her towards the development sector and in 2014, with a brother with Down syndrome having no avenue to pursue a career path of his own choosing, she founded the Sani Foundation.
