Gillian Winkler supports the Development team in identifying partners and donors whose values and interests align with the Safe Water Network mission, and building those relationships into mutually beneficial activities to move the safe water sector forward in its thinking and practice. She assists in translating strategic priorities into proposals for philanthropic foundations, corporations, global development actors (such as the World Bank and UNICEF), and governments. In addition, Gillian helps to maintain Safe Water Network’s country programs by managing grants, ensuring successful project implementation, and capturing project results to share with donors and other sector stakeholders.
