Petteri Alppi - Finland

I keep supporting Thinking Development even from abroad because I believe in its vision of development: holism, strengthening the grassroots, and creatively combining science, media and just plain caring!
January, 2010

Petteri ran UCL's development society, GDI, in 2010-2011, and has aided the project through events, fundraising and publicity work. He left his theory-based university course for practical experience in Zambia, where he worked with struggling schools/community schools/orphanages to increase self-sufficiency in school materials, and filmed documentary footage for their info and fundraising work. Partly inspired by Thinking Development, he next seeks to increase his technical skills to better serve struggling communities.
