Through the years I have developed myself as a competent enthusiastic midwife/advisor on international maternal health, women’s issues and twinning in healthcare. With my anthropological and midwifery background plus personal experience of growing up and/or working in Pakistan and Sudan, UK, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, Morocco and the Netherlands, I am well aware of the scope, cultural context and realities of the field. Projects that I have initiated, developed, managed and evaluated have involved a broad spectrum of skills from initiating innovative methods of cooperation, fundraising and financial management and evaluation research to managing large groups of (women) volunteers. My strongest quality is to be well informed, think strategically and involve, motivate and enthuse others with a mixture of lateral thinking, hard work and realism.
