About Alice

Alice has over 8 years of experience in the international development sector and joined Able Child Africa as a Programmes Officer in August 2016 from Deaf Child Worldwide; an organisation that supports deaf children and their families in Latin America, South Asia and East Africa. Alice graduated with a degree in Sports Development, during which time she also volunteered for an organisation in Eswatini. She then worked for a sports for development-focused organisation based in South Africa, where she gained further experience in programmes management, with projects focused on supporting disadvantaged and vulnerable children. 

Being deaf herself, Alice is extremely passionate about working with children with disabilities to break down barriers that prevent their inclusion. At Able Child Africa, Alice has worked with our partners across Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda to support the delivery of a number of projects. In her spare time, Alice enjoys playing and watching most sports and is known for her poor taste in music (including Celine Dion).
