Localisation, Creativity, and Shifting Power in African Development with Tessy Maritim | Ep 10

Season #1

Today's fundraising leadership conversation comes from Kenya and is with Tessy Maritim, former Organisation Development Coordinator at Care International and soon to be Oxford MBA student. 

We're going to be talking about many things in this episode today, among them:

  • Africa's creative industry, leadership and international development.
  • how to change systems, shift power and localise development within a major international NGO
  • Tessy’s personal educational journey, the challenges and triumph of gaining a scholarship
  • and much, much more.

I know you’ll enjoy meeting Tessy in our conversation today.
