Our Team

Our team comprises of skilled individuals who are passionate about community development, experienced in the (inter)national NGO and/or social business sector and all carry their own specific and valuable skill set.

Besides the staff, TAI relies on her network (currently around 51 people) of Community Health Workers and Peer Champions; TAIs Community Volunteers, who actively support TAIs activities. They are coming from, and are living in, the rural villages and form the direct connection between TAI and her beneficiaries. The Community Volunteers support TAI in activities such as: converging beneficiary groups, message delivery, carrrying out household visits, using Social Behavior Change Communication approaches to influence their peers and address ‘stigmatized issues’ such as child marriages, teen pregnancies, HIV/AIDS and menstruation and hygiene management.
