Director of Partnerships, Advocacy & Communications, Save the Children



Yani is a development specialist with a passion for social justice. Her background in psychology has led her to spend the last 16 years sharpening her skills in fundraising and communications to inspire others to change the world. Throughout her career, Yani has fundraised for the Homeless in the United States, and for children and unemployed youth in South Africa. She has also developed programs across the African continent. No matter what hat she wears, Yani’s goal is simple: to activate the private and public sectors to support, serve and advocate for the most marginalised citizens of the world community. Yani lives in Johannesburg with her husband and 2 sons.
