Erik Luchs was raised in Zimbabwe.

For the past thirty years he has lived in the United States. In 2008, Erik was drawn back to his homeland. He witnessed communities struggling to fulfill basic needs in the face of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, massive food shortages, a nationwide failed infrastructure and a failed banking system. Deeply moved by the paradox of the extreme beauty and extreme suffering found in Victoria Falls, he decided to start there. Erik spent 5 months in Africa, investigating and defining ways to give back to bring about positive change, and so Friends of Shamwari was born. Erik was in the financial world for over 18 years and his extensive experience in global financial strategic development will provide a strong backdrop to helping Friends of Shamwari accomplish it’s goals.
