I've just started as Save the Children's Campaign Mobilisation Director, leading our advocacy and popular engagement to save children’s lives. For the past 2 years I was Asia Strategy Director, overseeing programmes for children across a region stretching all the way from Afghanistan to North Korea. Earlier I led a range of programmes and campaigns for Oxfam and the Children’s Society. I started in development work at the grassroots, working with ANC, community organisations and schools in a South African township as a young volunteer, just after Nelson Mandela became President. I'm married to Geeta from India. We have two children aged six and three. Currently we live in Bangkok, and are moving to London in June. You can keep in touch with me on Twitter: @atbenphillips
