Between 1999-2004 I worked extensively for War Child Netherlands in a variety of roles: trainer of trainers, consultant, evaluator, assessor in diverse post conflict settings (Kosovo, Georgia, Eritrea, Sudan, DRC). Beginning in Georgia in 1999 as an artist and workshop leader working with displaced children and training local artists in the use of creative arts (music, drama, visual arts, storytelling) in helping children to adapt to the aftermath of conflict, my role developed to establishing the first creative arts psychosocial humanitarian programme for children involved in armed forces in Eastern Congo working with UNICEF, Save the Children, CARE and the IRC to develop community based psychosocial support programmes.

Head of Programme (Aug 2003-June 2004) Bukavu, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

Roles included programme set up, international and national recruitment, development of long term strategy and explo missions across the region, building relationships with national and international organisations, leading development of cross country emergency training in Child Protection based on SCF Action for the Rights of the Child. Client groups included children who were accused of witchcraft, survivors of sexual violence, orphans, former child combatants both in transitional centres and in the community. This project was cut short by the 2004 crisis in Bukavu and the project suspended due to political violence.
