About Us

my name is Loraine Masiya Mponela and a native of Malawi. I live in Coventry UK

My background is Public Health trained at both University of Malawi (Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health) and University of Leeds (Master of Public Health).
So many things I agree with including those that say:
“mental health breakdown is a symptom of oppression”
“peace is not the opposite of struggle”

WHO WE ARE
We believe that there is healing in telling and sharing our stories despite the struggles. We believe all stories matter. NAL is about sharing stories that matter to us as we seek healing.

OUR MISSION
to provide a platform for marginalised and minoritised communities to tell their story from their point of view, in the form they are comfortable to tell

OUR VISION
that everyones story is heard without being judged
