She has been privileged to have lived in various countries over the last 20 years. Living in the pacific Islands for eight years and surviving various tsunami warnings, earthquakes and torrential rains got her interested in the relationship between climate change and human capital especially in the Education sector. One of her passions is supporting out of school children. She is a co-founder of an NGO in Zambia for out of school children. Jane loves travelling while being climate conscious, cooking, reading when time allows and chilling with my loved ones.
