Introducing our CEO, Sarah Ireland! She’s pretty amazing.
Sarah began her career as a first-responder to the disaster zone in Myanmar from Cyclone Nargis. Since then, Sarah has built over 10 years experience in humanitarian outreach, international aid and the development sector.
She has led emergency response teams in the Philippines, Iraq and in the Horn of Africa. Then as a Humanitarian Advocacy and Policy Adviser, Sarah lobbied both Australian and overseas governments to increase foreign aid budgets and the intake of refugees, and to prioritise women and girls in their overseas aid programs.
It was on the front line of disasters and crises where Sarah witnessed the power of education. Sarah has a Bachelor in Journalism, a Master of International Studies (Peace and Conflict Resolution) and is currently studying a Master of International Law.
Sarah’s (impressive) areas of expertise:
- The power of education! And all the things it can achieve
- How education can impact the lives of girls
- The importance of empowering women globally
- The benefits of humanitarian outreach around the world
Sarah is available to comment on all things to do with girls’ education.
