Our team

A dynamic team with global reach and experience

We are a small team of dedicated sexual and reproductive health and rights specialists. We are well-versed in gender equality, social justice, health and women’s rights. Our team members have specialities in specific SRHR issues such as gender-based violence, abortion, menstrual health and female genital mutilation/cutting.

We manage AmplifyChange in both English and French and have a diverse range of linguistic skills in our team. Our breadth of reach and global connections mean we are always approachable to applicants and grantees; listening to and learning from each other.

Our core team is strengthened by a group of strategic advisors, who work closely with grantees after they have been awarded a grant. We work together on the basis of our key principles: we are accessible, supportive, open and transparent, demand-led and results-focused.
