Profile Information

Welcome! FierySpirits is for activists and professionals who are building vibrant, resilient rural communities. Tell us a little about why you'd like to join?
I received an email from a colleague about an online discussion group on Asset-based Community Development that was taking place through your site and wanted to participate.
About Me (areas of expertise/interest I can share)
I work for the Coady Institute in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, coordinating our East Africa program in Asset-based and Citizen-led Development. This action-research initiative in Ethiopia and Kenya is testing how a number of NGOs can stimulate and support community-driven development and then link community-driven action plans with local governments and research institutions to help communities become more self-reliant and continue to drive their own development. I completed a Development Studies degree from St. Francis Xavier University and a Masters degree from the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University in Ottawa. Before working for at the Coady Institute, I worked for the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) in the Human Rights and Participation Division of Policy Branch and for Oxfam Canada in Ethiopia.

Hi Brianne,
Welcome to Fiery Spirits! It's so great to "see" you after only having talked to you :-) I am hoping you can share your practical experiences with groups who are using asset-based approaches!
