Noel Coleman

Noel Coleman

Board Member

Noel started looking at life differently early on. From starting a general contracting company at the age of 12 and reselling “deformed” cookies from a local business on the school bus to winning the Ranatra Fusca individual’s award for creative thinking, looking at the world differently has always moved him toward what’s possible. After leaving Georgia Tech while studying engineering, Noel has gone on to develop skills from sales to executive management, strategy and planning helping grow and turn around a company from a small print shop to a SaaS model software provider to the healthcare industry. Noel’s love of children (starting primarily with his 3 boys) drives him to seek ways to protect and serve the most vulnerable from financially adopting children to getting involved in trafficking advocacy. Noel is very excited to be privileged to serve on the board of Just One and help them grow their reach and abilities. Noel lives north of Atlanta with a wife who’s out of his league and three “all-boy” boys.

Amy Churchill

Director of Operations and Co-Founder

Amy loves to serve others, it doesn’t matter if it is preparing meals for her personal chef clients back in the states, or if it means walking home to home to home in rural Kenya conducting follow up on our Clean Water Program. She is at home wherever she is, especially if a cup of coffee is in her hand, her husband of 20 years, and 3 awesome teenagers are with her. Coming from a long line of family members who dedicated themselves to caring and serving others, it seems only natural to continue on with the biggest blessing, which is being able to serve together in such significant ways as a family. Seeing how her children have embraced the changes they have made as a family to start up and grow Just One Africa, have been a constant source of inspiration and reinforce that it really does take JUST ONE person to make a difference!

“I had the rich opportunity to travel with the founders of Just One Africa to Kenya and observed first hand what they do. Their vision is clear and intentional – to help those that have great basic needs: clean water through water filters, medical clinics, food and clothing to widows, orphans, and families in the slums, and donations of educational supplies and musical instruments to schools to name just a few of their areas of impact! Because I know my donation truly goes for the designated need, I choose Just One Africa to be my charity of choice. I’m grateful that I can make a difference in the lives of others through this organization. I’m truly impressed with the “heart” of the founders and board of Just One Africa and the opportunity they afford me to be ‘just one’! “
