Regional Executive - South


Dorothy Dix is CEO and Co- Founder of Creating Better Futures.

Creating Better Futures is a registered UK and Zimbabwe charity, entirely run by volunteers, that meets the education and welfare needs of vulnerable children in orphans in Zimbabwe through child sponsorship, volunteering and fundraising.

Dorothy was born and raised in Zimbabwe and through child sponsorship was able to go to college in Norway and then attend The University of Reading on a scholarship. Dorothy’s life experience inspired her to set up Creating Better Futures with a core belief that education is the key to overcoming poverty.

Like all Creating Better Futures employees Dorothy is an unpaid volunteer. On top of all this, she is a dedicated Rotarian at the Rotary club Reading Matins and mother of two beautiful girls.



Due to loss of some of our funding we were no longer able to afford to remain in our current office space. This meant staff were losing their office and meeting space, with no alternative place to work.
