Laura Ostenso

Laura Ostenso, MA, is a Mickey Leland International Hunger Fellow at the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF). She works with WCF education and livelihoods programs to in-vestigate programmatic progress and impact, participate in private-public partnerships that advance farmer livelihoods and education in Ghana, and to identify the linkages of WCF's programmatic work with hunger alleviation and poverty reduction. Based in Accra until June 2012, Laura will be based in Washington, DC, starting July 2012.
Before starting as a Leland Fellow, Laura was a staff member at Innovation Network and served as a consultant to a variety of nonprofit clients-from Native American cultural preservation programs and international health advocates to youth development and microfinance resource organizations-to provide research, evaluation, and capacity building services. She is passionate about supporting and advancing international development initiatives that empower nonprofits/NGOs, governments, and the communities they work for. She has worked domestically in Washington D.C., Washington State, California, and Texas, and internationally in Uganda, Taiwan, Brazil, and Ghana.
Laura received her M.A. in Anthropology of Development from the University of Sussex in Brighton, U.K. and her B.A. in Political Economics from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. Since arriving in Ghana, Laura has discovered the joy of drinking hot chocolate instead of coffee, surprising her friends and family in being able to triumph over her coffee fanaticism (for the time-being). You can read about cocoa, chocolate, coffee and more on her blog: http://coffeemeetscocoa.wordpress.com/.
