War Child Canada is one of the country's largest charities and their impact is felt around the world. With operations in Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda, War Child is working with local communities to create environments where children can thrive.
As you can imagine this isn't easy. Which is why this week we're talking to Elliot Pobjoy, Chief Strategy Office at War Child Canada. In this episode, we talk to Elliot about War Child Canada's incredible work, Elliot's path from corporate law to philanthropy, managing remote teams in very challenging environments, the relationship between charities and their donors and advice on how to most effectively give back.
It's a deep dive into what it's like to manage and grow a multimillion dollar charity and there are tons of lessons that I'm sure you can apply to your own life.
