Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I grew up and studied in Zimbabwe. I worked there for 12 years then returned to Mozambique. I worked as a teacher and then joined the development industry. I am studying for a Master of Business Administration and hope to complete in 2011.
I am working for an international non-governmental organisation, Plan International, and deal with these issues constantly. I live in Mozambique that is recovering from conflict and experimenting with democracy.
