PEOPLE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS ORGANIZATION

Suzgo Simfukwe

I work as the Research and Programmes Design Officer at ACJ. My Career path in the Social Sciences and work experience in the NGO world over 15 years in Africa has given me a fairly good understanding of social problems and challenges that infringe on the rights of children, youth and women. It has also enabled me to participate in creating evidence-based prevention and mitigation strategies including advocacy work and lobbying for Policy change where needed. Working with such vulnerable groups including delinquent youth has also developed an inclination in me towards research, strategic social intervention through programmes design and implementation especially in rural communities, monitoring and evaluation.I am passionate about making a positive impact in people's lives and enjoy sharing ideas with like-minded professionals and lay people. I am looking forward to getting that on this platform as well as relevant information to help build partnerships around the world.
