Her areas of expertise include: conducting organisational capacity assessment to identify relevant gaps/needs, developing robust action plans for capacity strengthening, staff training, supporting organizations to develop safeguarding policies and code of conduct, capacity strengthening of organizations to promote safe programming through appropriate risk assessment, developing mitigation plans, establishing effective complaints and response mechanisms, ensuring adequate mainstreaming of safeguarding in programs, from project designing to implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.

constraints that are practical, while meeting their safeguarding needs.
