Born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe and now based in Washington, DC- USA. I read for my B.Sc (Hons) Agriculture and Business Management at The Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester - UK. Did my Masters degree in Public Administration at The University of Nottingham. Had such a wonderful time while doing my Masters degree that I returned for my Ph.D Public Policy.

Expertise Summary

Poverty Alleviation. I am interested in looking at the effects of community participation in poverty ( Ubuyanga) alleviation programs. I argue that its is vital for the community to be involved from the inception of the programs - the community getting involved in coming up with ideas that are likely to help them alleviate poverty, to the operationalization of that program. This is likely to make the community own the program, ensure that it succeeds and is sustained when other stakeholders leave the community.
