IMG_2330Hello everyone! My name is Ola Forman and I have just started as RESULTS UK’s Conference Volunteer. I will be in a few days a week helping to research, organise and promote the RESULTS National Conference. The conference will take place on the 13th-15th of June, after which I will be spending 10 weeks in Tanzania, volunteering with local entrepreneurs through Department for International Development (DFID) and Raleigh International. I am currently in my second year of university at UCL, studying an interdisciplinary course called Arts and Sciences (BASc), majoring in political science and policy. The more I learn about global poverty, health, education and the role of international politics, the more I think international development is a field I would like to work in after graduating. In 2014, I ran the Royal Parks Half Marathon for Amnesty International and have since been involved with some of their work but this is my first official role with an NGO. Many people care about global issues but see them as too complex to tackle. What drew me to RESULTS was the emphasis on the fact that we have enough resources in the world to tackle poverty; it’s just political will that is lacking. I look forward to being part of a team of passionate people who want to change that and make sure poverty is eradicated by 2030. To learn more and sign up for our National Conference, click here.
