About Us

Madagascar Team

The Madagascar side of the team is the heart of our registered nonprofit. They are on the grounds implementing the projects with profound zest and leaderships skills that can only be obtained when natural local leaders are given the opportunity to lead. Our Madagascar team is mostly a family run operation too. JJ, co-founder and programs operator, is our leader in Madagascar. JJ and Shana first met back in 2014 during a 3 week tour that JJ hosted through a travel company. When the mobile library was formed JJ had been a tour guide for 12 years and truly was made for the role he helped to forge. His family along with his wife, father in law and from time to time, his daughters support the mobile library. Notably we also work with the first female mycologist out of Madagascar, Anna, who also works out of England.

US Team

Lead and co-founded by Shana, the team is a curated selection of people integral to the strategic online functioning, marketing, research, support and expansion for Madagascar Mobile Library’s growth and projects. Notably we have began work with an Oregon based mycologist to help manage and develop our expansion into mushroom cultivation and mushroom taxonomy to support income sustainability and much more. Our US team is a family in its own right and is seeking additional people. 

Partnerships

Our partners play a crucial role in supporting all of our locally-led grassroot projects.
