Campaigner

I approach projects as campaigns for social change. This is how I inhabit the spaces of: Maternal Health, Diabetes, WasteSustainability, Education and Community Engagement.

The world we live in is not a fair one. Many systems and services are broken; some deliberately and some have been allowed to deteriorate. If you live in a city and constitute the elite in your geographical area – life is not so bad. If you live away from these ‘centres’ life can get tough and things can often go wrong – very dramatically.

I work in the are of Maternal Health because every minute somewhere on this planet a women dies when pregnant or when giving birth or after giving birth. Though often these deaths occur far away from where we live and work, and among rural and poor women – We can do something about this!

I work in the area of Diabetes because I have seen that people with diabetes have a big job ahead of them to keep their bodies in good shape through life.

I work in the area of Sustainability because global warming is our lived experience. We can change our ways, and we can get others to change their ways. Some of this can even happen through the products and services we design.

I work in education because it is what I enjoy doing. I believe in the works of all who have gone before me and said ‘its method’ and not content that matters. I am in education to give other humans a taste of their power to make a difference to the world we live in.

I inhabit the space of community engagement because I basically like hanging out with people, and  so I make my work contain field work and outreach activities.
