Developing Good Strategies
United Nations World Food Programme (WFP)
ShareTheMeal is part of the WFP’s innovation and knowledge management division and an innovative fundraising application. I started as a marketing and operations volunteer before I was offered a position in operations. My projects included the development and implementation of a talent acquisition and HR strategy, the organization of internal and external events as well as representing ShareTheMeal and WFP at external events and conferences, and conducting localisation, content marketing and customer support activities.
Telling Good Stories
Amplifying local voices with Right2Grow
Right2Grow is a strategic alliance between World Vision, Save the Children, The Hunger Project, Action Against Hunger, CEGAA and Max Foundation in six different countries, namely Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Mali, South Sudan and Uganda. Right2Grow breaks up silos and approaches development challenges, such as undernutrition, lack of WASH, gender inequality and climate change combined and systemically. With a “Shift The Power“ approach, civil society is at the core of Right2Grow operations. As the Global Communications Lead for Right2Grow, I have created the #childrensfullpotential campaign on World Children’s Day 2021 together with my team.
Building Good Connections
Food Systems Game Changers Lab
The Food Systems Game Changers Lab was a global programme to build a better food future organized by EAT, IDEO, Thought For Food, The Rockefeller Foundation, Forum for the Future, Meridian Institute, SecondMuse and Intention 2 Impact in support of the UN Food Systems Summit.
At the heart of the programme was the journey taken by 24 Solution Cohorts to co-create an Action Agenda that offers a vision for future food systems that are sustainable, equitable, healthy, and diverse as well as a transformative pathway to actualize that vision through a particular collective solution set.
As a systems practice facilitator, I worked with with three cohorts of game changers from every part of the world who brought their ideas, initiatives, and innovations, namely “Feeding children nutritiously“, “Enabling affordable & accessible nutrition“ and “Incentivizing dietary shifts“.
Sharing Good Knowledge
United Nations Food Systems Summit
As a Food Systems Hero, I convened three independend dialogues in support of the 2021 United Nations Food Systems Summit. In collaboration with a group of Acumen Academy Systems Practice learners, we hosted a session to understand “How To Unlock Positive Change In Ethiopia’s Food System“. Together with Thought For Food and FoodDrinkEurope, I organized and moderated dialogues on “Enabling Game-Changing Innovation & Next-Generation Entrepreneurs in the EU“ and “Facilitating the behaviours and attitudes of future food systems leaders“.
