Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
A graduate with a diverse range of experience, working in Africa, Asia , the Middle East and the UK. The roles undertaken have varied from a project manager for a charity , to a sales consultant and my most recent role as a Director, for a sales company. I have often taken roles which include initiating and developing innovative projects. I am fully trained in the logical framework approach to project planning and management and fluent in spoken Urdu and Punjabi

Categorized as is the archetypical 'resource-investigator'. A consummate traveller and networker, I constantly explore opportunities and develop contacts , building beneficial working relationships. Receiving a prestigious scholarship to study in Israel enabled me to study and travel alongside a diverse group of people. In Thailand I headed a teacher training session to over 100 Educators. I volunteered in a Palestinian Refugee Camp engaging with young people on issues around social injustice. In South Africa I delivered training to young people in employability.

Teaching and delivering workshops in such different and often difficult environments has served to shape myself as an excellent communicator who connects with others with a warmth and sensitivity that transcends culture difference. I am politically astute and aware of development issues facing each region.

I am currently looking for management opportunities, in Leeds, London or Overseas ( pref, somewhere warm!). My work experience and academic background has equipped my with a set of skills that is transferable across most industries. This is evident in the roles I have taken. I am eager to join an organisation I can commit to on a long term basis and progress both personally and professionally.

Kuan Yin : She who harkens to the cries of the world

Wise in using skilful means
In every corner of the world
She manifests her countless forms

Sri Lanka: After the final round of armed violence: a need for a vision of the future. Citizens of the World call for creative responses to the challenge of new government structures.
Rene Wadlow*

On 19 May 2009, the Government of Sri Lanka proclaimed an end to the fighting against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelan (LTTE), one of the world’s most enduring insurgencies. The LTTE had once controlled a quarter of Sri Lanka’s territory as they had pressed their campaign for an independent state for the country’s Tamil minority. Some 265,000 people have been displaced during the past several months in this last round of fighting.

Thus the major issue today is no longer calling for negotiations between the Government of Sri Lanka and the LTTE but rather to encourage all parties to look toward the future in a spirit of reconciliation.

The armed conflict, which began in 1983, has taken an estimated 70,000 lives with many wounded and lives broken. The psychological wounds are deep, and the healing of individual traumas with psycho-spiritual techniques is a real priority.

There is a need to develop governmental structures in which all citizens will feel that they belong and that their interests are safeguarded. Citizens of the World have often proposed federal structures as a way of respecting differences in a pluralistic society while providing the possibilities of joint action.

Such federal forms of government were agreed to in 1987 with the India-Sri Lanka accord leading to the 13th Amendment to the Sri Lanka Constitution. The Amendment provides for the establishment of provincial councils. Unfortunately, these councils have never become functional.

The suffering of the war may sow the seeds of future unrest and a desire for revenge unless steps are taken quickly to develop flexible structures which provide real regional autonomy.

We hope that you will join with other Citizens of the World in this call for creative responses in Sri Lanka
