We’re putting our best feet forward for the Aberdeen Kiltwalk 2019!

The team at Ecologia, along with some amazing supporters, are taking part in the Aberdeen Kiltwalk on 2nd June 2019.

We will be walking 5-26 miles to raise money for the work that Ecologia does and support our projects which help empower disadvantaged young people to live happier and healthier lives, and contribute to their communities.

Donate Now to support our team!

Our Wee Wanderers

    1. Liza, our CEO is getting out and about with us! She will be walking 5 Miles from Camphill School to the finish line at Duthie Park in the City Centre.

Whatever the weather, we will be putting our best feet forward and marching on until the end. Please, show your support and donate whatever you can to help the young people that we support. We can’t help them without you!”

Our Big Strollers

      1. Charlotte, our Bookkeeper, and Karen, our Growing2gether facilitator, have jumped at the chance and are looking forward to walking 15 miles from Crathes Castle to Duthie Park.

“I’m so excited! It’s a great opportunity to work on personal fitness and all the money that we raise is going to a great cause!”

Our Mighty Striders

      1. Robyn, our Project Development and Communications Officer, will be walking with some of our supporters to complete the Mighty Stride! They will be walking 26 Miles from Potarch to the finish line at Duthie Park.

“It’s going to be a long day, but worth every minute. I’m inspired by the work we do here, and it’s a fantastic opportunity to raise some money to support all the young people in our projects. Hopefully there’ll be plenty of sunshine so we can enjoy it as much as possible!”

Please give whatever you can – a little for us goes a very long way in our projects! Every donation is matched by 40% so for every £100, we receive £140.

Show your support for our walkers and help us to improve the lives of young children here in Scotland and in our other projects around the world.

susie Kemp

Susie has 30+ experience as a creative copywriter, editor, and proofreader, starting out as a 20-year-old copywriter in the Mad Men world of early 1990s advertising in South Africa. Ever since, she’s had a love affair with creative conceptualisation, thinking outside of the box, writing to a deadline, and being thrown in the deep end!

She took an MSc in Publishing at Edinburgh Napier University as a mature student, in 2015, and continues to keep herself busy working as a copy-editor, proofreader and copywriter in book publishing, corporate communications, and publishing project management.

Apart from her love of working with independent authors, Susie has a fondness for working in the third sector and likes to use her corporate communications and marketing experience to support projects close to her heart. She has lived and worked in the Findhorn area for 25 years, and has been involved in a number of third sector projects and organisations, and family businesses.

Working at Ecologia Youth Trust helps Susie to live in integrity with her values of supporting the next generation to be the best that they can be, and she sees it as a way to give back to Mama Africa, the beloved continent on which she was born.

Ellen joined the Ecologia team in June 2018 as Marketing and Communications Manager. Ellen has lived in Scotland for 6 years and has worked for non-profit and charitable organisations across varied fields. She currently shares her passion for helping young people through Ecologia Youth Trust and she works as a dancer and dance teacher in her spare time.

Robyn Cooper

Robyn is the Associate Director of International Projects, having previously worked within the team as a Project Development and Marketing Officer from April 2019 until May 2021. As Associate Director, Robyn is co-leading the International side of Ecologia with Founder and Director, Liza Hollingshead, bringing a new energy into Ecologia as they look towards the future of the charity.

Liza Hollingshead

Liza is the founder of Ecologia and Director of International Projects. She was born and educated in South Africa and worked there as a high school teacher. She moved to live in the Findhorn Community in 1974. She started Ecologia in 1995 after being introduced to Dmitry Morozov, the founder of Kitezh Children’s Community in Russia, and was inspired to support the community in its mission to rescue orphaned children from institutions and give them homes, families and education in a supportive environment.

This led to projects supporting disadvantaged youth and children in South East Asia and in East Africa. TRead more about Liza’s story here.
