Our Development Team

Our diverse team is composed by Volunteer people at our headquarters, by regional staff that work at the community level and at academic institutions, and by external collaborating specialists and development experts. Some of our colleagues and volunteers are located in different parts of the world to cover different communities’ needs (read more here). The general operations management is conducted at our headquarters in Vienna, Austria, where a truly multinational and multidisciplinary Volunteer  team is based.

The majority of our motivated volunteers are local residents of their communities, and thus are able to sustainably and effectively assist these communities establish and conduct their own development practices.  Below you will find our actual active Team.

Mr. Jamie Bergin

Department of Operation and Management

Jamie has worked as an intern with KFDWB since October 2017. He comes from Ireland originally and currently studies for a Masters of Advanced International Studies at Diplomatische Akademie Wien. Prior to joining KFDWB he completed an internship at the United Nations Offices for Drugs and Crime where he, among other things, contributed to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda. This was a source of motivation for joining KFDWB, which he feels offers pragmatic and creative solutions for the achievement of the SDGs. Currently he is working on a project titled “Putting the SDGs into practice”; in this project he is preparing video materials which link the work KFDWB to the substantive content of the SDGs, while at the same time encouraging young people in the developing world to develop the requisite skills and knowledge for the achievement of the SDGs. The outcome of the project will be shared on KFDWB Open Community platform (click here for more details) and across various SDGs media channel.

Mr. Israel Baroso

Department of Operation and Management

I’m a Brazilian student currently living in Bologna, Italy.  As a KFDWB remote volunteer, I’m responsible for the development of training materials within our community of practice platform. I believe in the possibility to unite technology and political thought to foster the community well being, and that human capacity to create innovation can serve to the good. To see that good solutions can be shared and to effectively make it possible through the use of ICTs is a great way to contribute to the success of the Sustainable Development Goals.   – Read more here.
