Hello and welcome to my site!
As you will read, I’m spending the year working as an Organisational Development Advisor for Africa 2000 Trust, in Windhoek, Namibia. Out here, I manage an environmental community outreach centre project in the rural Herero reserve of Ovitoto, near Okahandja. My role involves organising workshops, training and campaigns in the village to promote energy-efficient and eco-fabulous concepts and technologies. As you will read, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. But you don’t get anywhere if you don’t try!
But a little about me…
I’m 23 years old, from London. Last year I graduated from Edinburgh University in Social Anthropology with Development, and have decided to pursue a career in International Development, so this placement here in Namibia with VSO works out pretty well for that!
I’ve done a lot of charity work over the years, mostly working with children, and have a great interest in cultures and the way people live around the world, so I get to count myself as one of the few people around that can honestly say they really enjoy their work (sorry if that sounds smug!).
