I am the Senior Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Manager, leading the development of the results framework for the Foundation. I also work with the Foundations’ grantees to measure and document the results and impact of the projects funded. Prior to this role, I led Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning efforts for the International Republican Institute’s programs in East and Southern Africa.
I hold a Master of Science from the University of Edinburgh Center of African Studies and a BA Honours degree from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.
You can find my cleverly crafted scribbles on political transitions and civic participation across various African publications and, I am always ready to indulge in a sun soaked picnic. I am based in Kampala, Uganda.

love what it loves” – Wild Geese, Mary Oliver
