Joseph Bhila | President
Joseph Bhila is a father, a mentor and most-importantly a man who gives everything he has to others, From a young age, growing up in Mozambique during the civil war, he learned the importance of family and community; especially how those can become intertwined. His father was the village-planner for the Gaza province which could be translated into ‘mayor’ in modern society. Once the civil war started Joseph did all he could to protect his family and his community. Eventually, after escaping being a child solider, twice, he helped many more escape and lead the escapees journey to Swaziland. In Swaziland he slowly built up his own mechanic shop. Outside of Sharing Hope Africa, Joseph is a mechanic at his own autobody shop.
