Creativity, writing, multiculturalism, precision, organisation
In my view, the aim to help improve the work of organisations who assist crisis-stricken communities, by assuring the safety and reliability of their services as well as their accountability to local populations. In other words, make people's lives better in collaboration with HQAI's different partners. And this is what I find valuable, the human dimension and the will to provide a practical solution to those who need it.
HQAI is mostly special because of its people: a dedicated and committed team that is a pleasure to work with, always ready to help no matter how busy everyone is.
