I’m Sandi and I’ve been doing academic social science research for eight years. This year, I decided to start putting my research skills to use in the charity sector. Given my long-standing interest in, and desire to delve more deeply into, global politics and women’s rights, African Initiatives was the perfect place to start my new adventure. As programme support volunteer, I’m working on several projects that aim to improve the lives of women and children in Tanzania. What I love about AI is that partnership working is at the heart of all of these projects.
