I am a disaster manager with a passion for sustainable community livelihoods. My main interest focuses on the development of sustainable food security programmes for populations affected by conflicts and protracted emergencies. After my MSc in Disaster Management at Coventry University, I supported the Centre for Agro-ecology, Water and Resilience (CAWR) team in the ground breaking research into sustainable agriculture as a means to promote food security, reduce socio-economic vulnerabilities and provide a systematic approach to livelihood-based disaster risk reduction programmes in Nakivale Refugee Camp (Uganda). I have also been fortunate to have worked with the World Health Organization, Regional Office for Africa with the Department of health systems development. I am chair and co-founder of a local women information sharing group based in Coventry where members use monthly meetings and social activities to share experiences and challenges of livelihoods as well as discuss way forward to tackling daily life issues, build confidence through awareness activities that targets member’s potential.
