Quality, improvement and Accountability.
I became an auditor for HQAI to contribute to the quality and accountability of organisations working in the humanitarian sector. As an auditor for HQAI I build the confidence of donors to the aid sector, support the learning and development of humanitarian and development organisations and, most importantly, ensure communities and people affected by crisis are at the centre of all planning, programming and humanitarian responses.
