I work for ZOA as the WeAreAble! consortium coordinator, promoting food security and inclusion for persons with disabilities in Central- and East Africa. I also advice ZOA on climate resilience strategies. Prior to ZOA, I worked in Brussels at the EP and EC, before moving into the faith-based NGO sector with the Catholic NGO network CIDSE and its Dutch member Cordaid. I worked on advocacy and programming in fragile contexts, from trade and food security, children’s rights, policy coherence, migration and development, to global health and ODA policies.
I have gathered over 25 years of experience in advocacy in Africa, the Netherlands and EU, and at global level. I enjoy developing and implementing advocacy strategies together with southern partners, mobilizing public, political and donor support for those most in need.
