I'm the Global Engagement Manager for ActionAid International

Global Engagement Manager
International

I work for ActionAid International working closely with national offices to get our campaigns out to people who might be interested in them!

I'm based in the UK and am an active campaigner in my spare time as well as working within the campaigns team at ActionAid. As a self-professed geek, I'm particularly keen on how we can use digital means to make our work more effective and have been involved with most of ActionAid's ICT4D projects so far.
