Tukiya Mbewe

Technical Services Librarian

After completing her studies in the UK and returning to Zambia, Tukiya started volunteering with Lubuto in October 2016. Three months later, she joined the team as a full-time Lubuto librarian! She has worked in public health and teaching, as well as administration, marketing, development consulting, and hotel management, and she holds a bachelor’s in Development Studies and a master’s in Poverty and Development. From a young age, Tukiya wanted to help improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children and youth, and she believes that working for Lubuto gives her a sustainable platform to meet the needs of these children through library programming.
