Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work alongside local communities and businesses in far reaching corners of the world? How to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS across villages in Malawi? Talk about access to justice with indigenous tribes in Timor-Leste? Spread a message of peace on the ground in Papua New Guinea? Find out from the experts in the second half of our two-part series with leaders from Counterpart International, a development organization that for 50 years has been working in close partnership with people and communities in more than 65 countries around the globe.

In this episode, you’ll hear from three of Counterpart’s country directors – Bedilu Shegen, Steve Wisman and Carolyn Tanner – who share a bit about their experiences working in some of the world’s most challenging places to bring life-changing health and justice programs directly to the doors of those who need them most. Best of all, when you’re finished this episode and eager to hear more, take a listen to our recent conversation with Counterpart leaders from Guatemala and the Dominican Republic (episode #132) and with Counterpart President and CEO Joan Parker (episode #84).
