My home base for the last 25 years has been Indonesia where I have engaged in short term consulting for most major donors, INGOs, local NGOs, and grass roots activism. I have also worked in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Uganda, Thailand and Timor Leste. In addition to focusing very heavily on gender and child protection issues, I also have expertise in DRR and sustainable agriculture, public health with a focus on nutrition, HIV, sex education, harm reduction.
