In 2001 she moved to the United Kingdom where she has worked as a Cleaner, Carer Assistant and Support Worker in various settings which includes Hospitals, Mental Health institutions in Wales.

Margaret identified that there was a need for an organisation to support men especially African men. This was after there have been issues where black men were involved in incidents where they committed sucide and in some cases they killed their partners and children and then killed themselves. This was a shock in the black community as it became a sort of trend. There were also cases where some men were made homeless due to misunderstanding with partners. Margaret thought there must be a way to prevent these catastrophic acts. Therefore after sharing the idea with like minded people in October 2019, the idea continued to gather momentum and Men Also Do Matter2 (MADM2) was born in July 2020.
My life philosophy is best summarised by Prof. De Bono: ” Thinking is the ultimate human resource. The quality of our future will depend entirely on the quality of our thinking. This applies on a personal level, at community level and on the world level” (De Bono , 1996). De Bono’s Thinking Course. The Africa diaspora should find the answers to some social problems they come across, hence my participation in MADM2.
I am an Accountant by profession who has a passion for humanity.
