Richard Poole

Thirty years working in emergency, reconstruction and development in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. Projects have included agricultural development, reforestation, primary health care, water and sanitation, and micro-credit in settled communities, as well as life support for IDPs and refugees.

I am the author of three books which seek to share with others the immense passion, joy and satisfaction of my experiences as a humanitarian worker.

On a side note, I am the only Englishman to have played professional football in Ecuador, you can check this in the local version of Trivial Pursuits :-)
