Save the Children Fiji has welcomed its new chief executive officer, Shairana Ali.
Ali succeeds Iris Low-McKenzie, who will undertake independent consultancy work.
She intends to build upon the solid foundations left by Low-McKenzie, and to continue to strengthen Save the Children’s capacity as the leading child rights organisation in Fiji – dedicated to driving constructive change for children across the region.
Ali has over 10 years’ experience working in the Fiji civil society sector and 9 years of experience working with UNICEF.
She previously worked with the Fiji Council of Social Services for 2 years before joining UNICEF and then migrated to the United States.
She returned to Fiji in November 2018 where she took on the role of Program Manager for Save the Children Fiji.
