In 2019, we were told by colleagues around the world that they wanted to know what staff in other offices got up to. In particular, there were a few offices – Germany, Italy, India and our Regional Offices – that were a bit different to the HQs and country offices which dominate our network. So we tracked down colleagues in each of those places and we asked them! They told us all about what their offices do and what their own experiences are working for Action Against Hunger in their own specific contexts.
We also feature two special episodes: one all about our progress, challenges and learnings in 2019, and a roundtable discussion with five members of our International Executive Committee, where they reflected on Action Against Hunger’s progression over recent years, and where they see the organisation going in the future.
SPECIAL EPISODE 2020: REFLECTIONS AND LEARNING FROM 2019
Action Against Hunger is a learning organisation. So, every 12 months, we take the time to look back on the previous year and reflect on our achievements and challenges, and what we’ve learned. The result of that is four reports, detailing everything from the big impact numbers (we reached 5.5 million people through our nutrition programmes, for example), to our activities in the 47 countries where we operate, to the specific and unique learning experiences of our staff around the world. Listen to this special episode of the No Hunger Radio podcast to learn more about why we reflect on our progress and learning, and what it has taught us.
EPISODE 1: GERMANY AND ITALY
Our first episode in the series focused on the roles of our offices in Germany and Italy, which focus on fundraising & communications, advocacy and programme funding. Featuring Simone Garroni (Director of Action Against Hunger Italy) and Jan Friedrich-Rust (Director of Action Against Hunger Germany).
EPISODE 2: OUR REGIONAL OFFICES, PART 1
In the first of two episodes about our regional offices, we discussed the purpose and rationale behind the creation of each of the three regional offices: the Horn and East of Africa Regional Office; the Middle East Regional Office; and the West Africa Regional Office. Featuring Hajir Maalim (HEARO), Rui Oliveira (MERO) and Michael Zongo (WARO).
EPISODE 3: OUR REGIONAL OFFICES, PART 2
Following on from the previous episode, we spoke to Hajir, Rui and Michael again, this time to understand the contextual challenges that each of the regional offices faces and their unique approaches to overcoming those.
EPISODE 4: INDIA
India, the only office in our network that is both a fundraising headquarter and an operational country office, occupies a unique space in the Action Against Hunger family. We spoke to Dr Washundara, CEO of Action Against Hunger India, and Anu, Head of Communications and Fundraising there.
SPECIAL EPISODE 2019: REFLECTIONS FROM THE INTERNATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
Five members of our International Executive Committee – Veronique Andrieux (France), Andrea Tamborini (USA), Olivier Longue (Spain), Danny Glenwright (Canada) and Jean-Michel Grand (UK) – gathered round the table to discuss the areas in which Action Against Hunger has made the greatest strides in recent years, and what they see for the organisation’s future.
