Emmie Kumbikano-Gumulira has a total of 13 years working experience, 11 of which were in the field of Medical Rehabilitation (A combination of physical therapy, occupational therapy and communication therapy). She has worked in rural settings across the districts of Malawi having worked as District Rehabilitation Officer for Malawi Against Physical Disabilities (MAP) and Partners in Health (PIH). During her 4 years of service in Neno, her passion for vulnerable persons, especially women, children, orphans, persons with disabilities increased due to the high level of desperation and destitution among the people. She decided to upgrade herself academically and professionally and she enrolled at Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR) for a BSc in Human Sciences to improve her skills in serving vulnerable persons. This degree has enabled her to work in the fields of Nutrition, HIV and AIDS, Education, Youth as well Emergency Situations through working for Creative Center for Community Mobilization (a local NGO), Assemblies of God Care (a faith based local NGO), GIZ Nutrition and Access to Primary Education International (an International NGO) among others. She is extremely excited to be a member of the Innovation: Africa team and participate in bringing water, light and nutritious food (through drip irrigation) using Israeli innovations and technologies. She sees this not as a job, but as her service to mankind.
