U.S. Board of Directors

Mark Seymour - Chair

Mark Seymour currently works for Amazon Web Services as Head of Global Sales Events.  In 2009, following a trip to Zambia with his c-founder Princess Kasune, Mark was compelled to reconnect and give back to a country where he spent a number of years as a child.  At age 4, Mark moved to Zambia with his family where they lived in the suburbs of Lusaka, several hours from the communities Fountain of Life Africa is now partnering with.

Returning 35 years later, he saw a great need to come alongside the young children in rural communities, who are overlooked and under-served by other non-profit organizations and government social services.  This is particularly true in the areas of clean water, basic access to education and healthcare.

Mark holds the position of Executive Director of Fountain of Life Africa, and is currently Board Chair. He manages a small team in Zambia to oversee the projects, working remotely and during his trips each year.
