Anna started her career in development as a fundraiser at VSO before moving to volunteer management. She was recruited to manage VSO's youth volunteer programmes in East Africa. To date she has run youth volunteer programmes around the world for organisations such as VSO, Balloon Kenya and Project Peru, working with over 250 international volunteers. In 2014 Anna co-founded _SocialStarters, an organisation which matches skilled professionals to carry out pro bono consultancy projects with social entrepreneurs in India, Sri Lanka and Brazil. Anna passionately believes that volunteering can sustainably develop, empower and educate people and organisations, but also that it's an opportunity to inspire those to make change in their own communities once they return home. She's currently living in India as a digital nomad.
