Effie is a campaigns assistant at WDM having first come across the organisation when she was in the throes of moving abroad to work on programmes to combat poverty in Africa. WDM made her realise to her horror that much of the poverty there existed due to UK international policies. Effie then traded a life in the sunshine for life in the inner city and initially volunteered at WDM before moving into her current role. Effie has a Master's degree in Development. She has also been involved in the Women’s Environmental Network, arts and crafts, school volunteering and vegetable growing, as well as being a parent and child producing.
