Hi! I'm Jeannette, a graduate of Robert Kennedy College. Let me tell you a bit about myself.

I am a Rwandan married woman, with four children. I am currently working for CARE International USA as a Global Safeguarding Advisor.

Since 1998, I have worked for INGOs in both humanitarian and development context in Africa. I supported various Country Humanitarian teams in the preparedness and response to emergencies and humanitarian crises with a particular focus on Safeguarding and Prevention of Sexual harassment exploitation and abuse. I am an activist and facilitator on gender, diversity, belonging, and inclusion matters with more than twenty years of experience. I am deeply knowledgeable about how gender issues affect girls/women and I have worked very hard to challenge cultural norms. I am trained as a global PSHEA investigator, and I have conducted and supported investigations across various country humanitarian response.

Outside work, I am the chief of my father’s family and as a woman, I enjoy that role which is not common within a patriarchal system.

As a mother of 4 adolescent sons and employee in a International humanitarian organization, studying online was the best option i could afford! I had been waiting for it. I enjoyed the flexibility with lecturers as i could review recordings after work and during weekends. I really encourage all busy professionals and mothers in particular to go for this program with RKC and University of Salford! You will enjoy it!

If you have any questions about my experiences of studying with RKC, I would be happy to share them with you.
