Wonu has over a decade’s experience in fundraising. Her interest in fundraising and the not-for-profit sector started in her youth when she volunteered for international charities such as Oxfam, UNICEF UK and Christian Aid. Since then she has built considerable experience working with several organizations in the international development and social impact space including FAIR SHARE of Women Leaders, openDemocracy, Equality Now, Plan International UK, Christian Aid, Girl Effect and the More than Brides Alliance, a partnership between Oxfam Novib, Simavi, Population Council and Save the Children Netherlands. She has worked with trusts, foundations, and bilateral and multilateral donors based in Europe, the US, Africa and Asia.
