Barbra joined NOTDEC in November 2017 — and lives on site. In January 2018 she took up a new post focussing specifically on social welfare.

At the outset, Barbra spent part of her time visiting the children living on-site, so that she had a good understanding of any issues well before efforts were made to settle those children with their wider families.  This is importantin rolling out a consistent and professional approach to all the children cared for by NOTDEC Uganda.

From January 2018, Barbra's new role has been working with a community organisation concerned with child protection in the community  - now the central focus of her work.
