  • Understanding of budgets and business-planning

What difference will you make?

● Reducing environmental damage and regenerating natural resources.

● Lifting people out of extreme poverty and championing financial inclusion.

Making real change can be slow and frustrating. Our candidates must believe in the power of positive. It’s a labour of love, and every little push forward makes a difference!
