CHRISTIAN AID: FINANCE MANAGER, NIGERIA
More than half the world lives in poverty. We aim to put a stop to that. So we campaign against the structures and rules that keep people poor. And we work with local organisations to give people strength to find their own solutions to the problems they face, irrespective of their religion. In Nigeria, our programme is currently focused on improving governance at a local level and cutting the spread of endemic diseases like HIV and Malaria. We will be looking to you to lead the programme into new areas.
