UK Chief Executive
"I feel very lucky to be a part of Amref Health Africa's team. My career in international development has been focussed on three areas of passion: sub-Saharan Africa, work which is shaped, owned and valued by the communities where it takes place and the importance of health as a basic and fundamental human right. Amref has all three woven permanently into its DNA."
Head of Operations
"I’m delighted to be part of the Amref Health Africa team working with African communities on the issues that really matter to them about women and girl’s health and motherhood. It’s great to be part of such a dynamic African charity, and I’m looking forward to supporting the sharing of Amref's learning about what really works when partnering with communities."
Head of Finance
"Working for Amref Health Africa is great – we’re part of a large global organisation with immense expertise, coverage and capacity to implement really innovative and valuable work in Africa, which is really exciting. But as Amref UK, we’re a small dynamic team and can therefore act quickly and efficiently to support our projects. The best of both worlds!"
Finance and Administration Officer
"From my time living and working on a Maasai school project in a remote region of Northern Tanzania, it became heartbreakingly clear that without strengthening access to healthcare and health systems, a quality education could only take a person so far. Working for Amref Health Africa I knew that I could be a part of real systematic change led by local people, building solid foundations for future prosperity."
"I grew up in the MRC compound in West Africa as a consequence of my dad’s work in International Health and Development. Because of this, I have always had an interest in these areas, particularly with regard to the issues faced by women; one of the core focuses of Amref Health Africa."
Global Account Manager - GSK
“Growing up as a young kid in Kenya - I was fascinated by the Amref Flying Doctors. A uniquely African led organisation with the interests of marginalised communities at heart. By employing the tools of our time, Amref Health Africa demonstrates commitment to improving the health of people in Africa by partnering with and empowering communities, and strengthening health systems. It is this principle of genuine partnership - built on trust and mutual respect that ensures sustainability of our work. It is this principle that resonates with who I am."
"I wanted to work for Amref Health Africa, because the organisation is African-led and respects the dignity of the people they support."
"I have worked with many international NGOs but Amref Health Africa has a unique approach to development intervention, with focus on maternal and child health, largely ignored by many NGOs. In addition, Amref uses community-based healthcare as basis for its work and by so doing Amref empowers communities to be both partners and beneficiaries. Apart from being an African based organisation, Amref have a spectrum of knowledge and experience with African people, designing and implementing programs that very few international NGOs have. I am happy to be a member of the Amref family and to contribute in lasting health change in Africa."
"Since visiting a remote part of eastern Kenya whilst I was at school, I have been very interested in international development in Africa. I really like the fact that Amref Health Africa is Headquartered in Nairobi, and is supported, rather than led, by offices such as the UK. I’m particularly interested in Amref’s training and capacity building work, which enables health workers to increase their skills and knowledge, which they can then pass onto others and use to better respond to the health needs of their communities."
Head of Fundraising
"I joined Amref Health Africa because I believe that working with women and girls is the most effective way to improve lives across Sub-Saharan Africa. I’m excited to share Amref’s unique approach and ambition for the future with our existing supporters as well as new individuals and organisations."
Trusts and Foundations Officer
“I think it’s great that Amref Health Africa is African led - that’s what makes it different from many other development organisations and such an exciting place to work.”
Individual Giving Officer
“I wanted to work for Amref Health Africa because of their approach - there is no ‘one-size fits all’ attitude here. This tailored response shows the respect the charity has for local customs and traditions.”
"From volunteer experience at grassroots in rural Ghana and Uganda, I have witnessed first-hand the struggles faced by communities that lack adequate healthcare. Not only does Amref Health Africa take on the challenges fully, it does so by working directly through women and girls to resolve healthcare issues. For me, this is vital to achieving positive, lasting and sustainable change."
