Chris has been working in international development for five years. He first got interested in the problems of Africa at university - then went on to do a Masters in development theory at King's College, London. He now works in an office in Holborn and, some weeks of the year, he’s based in northern Uganda, just near Lake Albert, where his charity has three pilot projects concerned with irrigation and soil erosion. At the heart of his work is the idea that if only money can be channelled directly to the people who need it most, rather than being filtered through corrupt bureaucracies, then Africa will eventually (it might only be a decade) break out of its tragic cycle of poverty. It's a theme he's written four papers on, and which he hopes one day to develop into a book.
