Natasha Kimani

“I’m very conscious of the fact that you can’t do it alone. It’s teamwork. When you do it alone you run the risk that when you are no longer there nobody else will do it.” ― Wangari Maathai

As Head of Partnerships and Research, Natasha leads ANF’s efforts to connect and build the field of narrative changemakers and to make narrative evidence based and relevant to African conversations.

Natasha is passionate about the amplification of African voices and strongly believes that shifting harmful narratives will lead to increased positive attitudes, perceptions and beliefs about the endless possibilities and opportunities within the continent.
