About Valeriia van der Westhuizen
My name is Valeria and I am the Media and Women Empowerment Manager at conservation non-profit Transfrontier Africa NPC. We are based in Olifants West Nature Reserve, Greater Kruger in South Africa.
Everything that we do for conservation on our beautiful country is based on 5 strong pillars:
2. Wildlife Management
3. Wildlife Security and Anti-Poaching
4. Women Empowerment and Community Integration
5. Environmental Education and Awareness
I am super proud of being part of our team. My core responsibilities are: media relations, social media management, events (conferences, talks, presentations), fundrasing, funders relations and women empowerment and upliftment. The latter is my recent domain that I am extremely interested in and inspired to work on, and that in fact pushed me towards the course in Project Management as I realised I need to structure multiple projects within the Women Empowerment programme to coordinate them better and manage them.
