Our Team

Shkendije is governed presently by three board members:

David Hillyer

David Hillyer

David is our wise one, coming from a 43 year background as CEO of a residential Activity Centre based on the east coast of UK, serving children and young people, he retired but continues to serve as a trustee. He trained as a teacher in design technology but shortly after felt the calling to invest his life into ‘FACT’ (Fellowship Afloat Charitable Trust). David was also a ‘Justice of the Peace’ (Magistrate) for young offenders’ court for 25 years. He is a committed detailist, loves the nitty-gritty and is our biggest fan. He first came to Albania in 2007 and has grown a great appreciation and love for the nation ever since.
