Mr. Roland Angerer

Member

In his almost 30 years of professional career in development, Mr. Roland Angerer has worked in all continents. Starting with advocacy and development education in his home country Austria, he later joined the UNDP in El Salvador and Honduras and then switched to Africa where he coordinated the programs of an Austrian NGO in Zimbabwe and Mozambique. In 2001, he joined Plan International as Country Director in Colombia and from 2006 – 2010, he headed the country operations of Plan International in India. From August 2010 to December 2013 he served as Regional Director in the Americas and from January 2014 to May 2018 he was responsible for the operations of Plan in 12 countries as Regional Director for Eastern and Southern Africa. Since June 2018, he is the Regional Director for ChildFund International in Asia, based in Bangkok. His academic background – a PhD in Communication Science from the University of Salzburg/Austria and a Masters in Development Management from the Open University/UK – helped him to understand that development is a constant process of evolving attitudes, mindsets and choices for people and requires a continuous and firm rejection of all forms of injustice and discrimination.

Life at ChildFund

Abhaya Kumar Behera

Director, Resource Mobilisation

In my 14+ years of working with ChildFund, I have seen many positive changes happen within the organization that improved the quality of work we deliver. Through all of this, the core intent to serve communities who are marginalized has remained the same. I joined as a National Coordinator for Direct Implementation; and today, I am the Director for Resource Mobilisation. The opportunities and space for growth that I got here are incredible. To anyone who wants to work in the development sector, I will recommend ChildFund because of the supportive work culture among the teams, that definitely helps achieve great milestones.

Officer, Child Development

The love for my job and the safe work environment that I got here as a woman is what made me stay with ChildFund for the past 31 years. The satisfaction of knowing that the support is reaching the children and its visible impact is inspiring. I get to see the donor’s happiness when they learn about the achievements and growth of the children they support. It gives me so much joy.

Admin Officer

I had joined ChildFund in 2014, and it has always given me a sense of home. I have been on the receiving end of their support, so I have personally experienced the change this could bring in a child’s life. Now, through my work, I can give back to society which is the best part of my job. As a professional, I have learned a lot from here, the team support and the guidance I have gotten here have been fantastic.
I look forward to many more years with ChildFund.
