*This episode was pre-recorded on the 27th of February 2020, before the global lockdown ensued.* In this episode, we are joined by perhaps one of the warmest souls I have met in all of my travels, I connected with our guest a few weeks ago while exploring the Republic of Benin. She is an international development worker with Dimagi- an international organization on a mission to build technology that improves the efficiency and quality of impact-driven work globally. She serves as Director of Project Delivery in 6 countries across Agriculture, Education, nutrition and HIV prevention. Our guest also works as Pipeline and Reports officer with the World Food Program. She is a recipient of the highly acclaimed Princeton in Africa Fellowship and a graduate of Vanderbilt University where she bagged a Cum Laude (Latin for Honors) in History and Political science and a minor in French! We gab about what it’s like to get into International Development work, our shared love for cooking, trade stories of curing our biggest fears, how to manage personal safety when traveling abroad and why being helpful is the surest to connect with people while abroad. — This week's notification squad shoutout goes to @radioboy_ricky.

He’s been In Cotonou over the last 10 days doing post evaluations after the government of Benin introduced RotaVirus vaccines.
