Lindsay co-founded Pangea Schools in 2011 in response to the need of access to quality education in Malawi, and dreams to extend this response across the African continent. Her debut novel is Courage.
We believe that when youths in Africa are empowered and equipped with the knowledge and skills to improve their situations at an individual, community, national and continental level, they can help steer the world toward prosperity, equality and unity.
We are an international social-profit organization currently operating in Malawi and the U.S. Our mission is to build secondary schools in Africa free for disadvantaged youths that follow a holistic and global-centric approach to learning and curriculum, with applications of knowledge and skills to current local, national and global issues.

In 2011, Lindsay co-founded Pangea Schools, a social-profit organization, in response to the need of access to quality education in Malawi, and with the dream to extend this response across the African continent. Her ideas about education reform in Africa came about from an internship teaching in Malawi and prior trips to Malawi.
