About me

I am responsible for the technical guidance and support to 186 Red Cross and Red Crescent partners worldwide in responding to emergencies and planning psychosocial programmes. This includes support to strategy development, programme design, quality control, assessments, monitoring, evaluations, lecturing, facilitation and training. I have significant experiences in building global best practice programmes, management, strategy development, programme development and implementation. I have over 13 years working experiences from the humanitarian, development and private sector with solid work experiences from the UN with postings in Southern Africa and extensive experiences from Asia. Additionally, I have undertaken several field and work missions covering most of the world. I hold two Masters degrees. One in International Development and another in Geography. Finally, I have a post graduate degree in Humanitarian Management from Fordham University in New York.
