I am currently the Programme Manager, Women Rights and Political Lobbying for Medica Mondiale. I am based in Afghanistan. For the last nine and a half years I have worked for International Alert, the London based international non-governmental organisation, where I have held a number of posts including Programme Manager for Gender, Peace and Security, and was a key part of the team that launched the Women Building Peace campaign which contributed to the adoption of UN SC Resolution 1325. I have also worked as the Humanitarian Assistance Co-ordinator for UNOHAC - UN Mission to Mozambique and Programme Administrator for Save the Children - USA, Mozambique. I have gained extensive experience in project management, both in the UK and abroad, for a variety of organisations and NGOs. My other experience includes policy monitoring and development; using diplomacy to network and create strategic alliances. I have a BEd in Sociology and an MSc in Development Practices.
