It is quite an achievement to say that you've founded an international charity that has worked with local communities in northern Uganda to enhance the lives of over 1000 war-affected individuals and formerly abducted children. It's even more impressive to be able to say that you've been a part of raising over £400,000 to support this too!
Well, this week's guest has done *just* that! We've been chatting with multilingual lawyer, Shirah Mansaray. Shirah is the CEO of ‘I am Somebody’s Child Soldier’, an international charity working with rescued child soldiers and child victims of war.
Shirah has a Master’s degree in Development, Technology and Innovation Policy, and is currently undergoing her PhD studies at University College London. In the humanitarian field for over 15 years, Shirah has worked with the United Nations and the Council of Europe.
As well as this, Shirah sits on the board of Amnesty International, utilising her legal training to assist board rooms and is passionate about human rights, the charity sector and policy.
