Andrew Mariki – Monitoring Manager/Assistant Group Certification Manager
BSc in Wildlife Management. I started working for MCDI in 2010 as a Field Officer for our REDD project. I have since gone on to manage our role in the national 'Mama Misitu' Campaign on forest governance, and led our expansion to Tunduru District. This is a great place to work - I am free to innovate and share my ideas, and also have plenty of opportunities to learn new things. In my spare time, I enjoy watching football (Chelsea fan, and support Azam Football Club here in Tanzania), playing basketball, and spending time with the people I love.
Likes: cold beer and BBQ goat (mbuzi choma)
Dislikes: ugali (thick maize porridge)
The Rest of Our Team
Hamisi Ulega – Field Officer
I have been working for MCDI since 2014. I enjoy the opportunities to learn from the communities where we work, and also the sense of teamwork I have with my co-workers. In my spare time I enjoy watching action movies.
Likes: eating pilau (spiced rice with beef)
