As EMpower’s programme officer for South Africa, Deborah Diedericks plays a key role in supporting a diverse South African portfolio. Prior to EMpower, Deborah worked in the South African nonprofit sector for more than a decade, specifically as Director of Khululeka Grief Support. Khululeka focuses on child and teen bereavement support and Deborah supported the development of an evidence-based teen girl specific curriculum. Khululeka also afforded a space to learn and grow in the context of organisational development, fundraising and capacity building. Deborah is deeply interested in a learning and listening approach to grant making – learning alongside grantees and their beneficiaries about what is most needed and what is the best form of support. Deborah holds a Master’s degree in Adult Education and Development (MPhil) from the University of Cape Town.
