An anthropologist by training, I have worked in capacity building and agricultural development since 2009. Be it improving knowledge management with farmers' cooperatives, researching gender in the context of dairy farming in Nepal, or preparing volunteers for deployment from Canada, I have lived and breathed Uniterra in many capacities.
Currently, I am in Tanzania, working with the WUSC office for one year to help with the launch of the Uniterra program. Bringing my years of experience with the program in Nepal and Canada to Tanzania, I am working with our staff here to perform organizational capacity assessments with new partners. Our local partners are the key to sustainable, inclusive, economic growth, and I have the opportunity to sit with each one to determine how volunteers can help them better meet their organizational objectives.
