Saskia was delighted to join Humentum, formerly Mango, in April 2016 as it is her first role in an NGO! She mainly aids Jackie and Stella in the day-to-day business of the recruitment team. She really enjoys interviewing register members about their experiences on placement; there's so much to learn from our members who have such great knowledge and experience of the NGO sector. Before joining Humentum, Saskia volunteered with Opportunity International and some smaller charities such as Amantani who work with children in Peru and Ammalife who work on improving maternal healthcare in the developing world.
Saskia holds an MSc in Development Studies and is currently doing an MPhil in Latin American Studies. Her main interest is in sexual and reproductive rights (SRRs) in development, and in July/August she will be going to Peru to do research with adolescent mothers from indigenous communities.
