We are delighted to announce the arrival of a new Programmes Officer to the Vita Dublin team!

Hailing from bonny Edinburgh, Sam Kappler is our new Programmes Officer. He will be working closely with our teams in both Ethiopia and Eritrea to deliver programme quality that will safeguard sustainable livelihoods for rural communities.

Sam has a very strong background in development having worked in the sector for eight years. Much of his time was with World Vision and he has experience of working with country teams in Mauritania, Uganda, Tanzania and Swaziland. A key aspect of his job will be to support and improve Vita’s programme quality and learning.

Sam joins Emily and John in the Dublin Programmes Office and we are thrilled to have such an experienced addition to our team! With trips in the works to meet our Ethiopian and Eritrean staff and get stuck into the role, we are thrilled to welcome Sam to the Vita family and cannot wait for the coming months!

Welcome Sam!
