In Malawi, I worked with Plan International and Konrad Adenauer Foundation to mobilize, train and support women and young people to exercise voice and agency in politics and policy processes. I also worked with with the EU, supporting analytical work on elections in Malawi as well as UN Women on ending violence against women and girls.
I moved on to the Commonwealth Secretariat in London, and contributed to technical advisory to governments on youth and gender policies. I was special aide to the Commonwealth Deputy Secretary General on several bi-lateral engagements in southern Africa and with High Commissioners in London; as well as special aide to the Conference Secretary for the 9th Commonwealth Youth Ministers Meeting.
I joined the World Bank in Washington D.C. as Young Professional. At the Bank, my role is to ensure that people remain at the center of development financing; and that they can contribute to and benefit from the development process and outcomes in their community. I have worked many countries in the East Africa and Europe and Central Asia regions.
I enjoy the world of work, for the opportunities to connect with people and places; and experience our shared humanity and collective aspirations. I (un)learn everyday, and hope to use this blog to reflect on this, among other things.
