New CEO For A New Year

Save the Children Fiji is pleased to officially announce that its new chief executive officer is Iris Low-McKenzie.

She succeeded Raijeli Nicole, who moved on from the organisation in late August, to take on the role of Pacific regional director with Oxfam.

Mrs Low-McKenzie intends to build upon the solid foundations left by Mrs Nicole, and to continue to strengthen Save the Children’s capacity as the leading child rights organisation in Fiji.

The incumbent has over six years experience working in the Fiji civil society sector and five years experience working with the Australian Aid Programme.

Mrs Low-McKenzie previously worked with Save the Children Fiji for three years before joining the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). Her background is in sociology and population studies/demography with a postgraduate diploma in Social Policy and Administration.

“It’s an honour to be back working for Save the Children Fiji,” she said.

“I believe I have come in at the right time, when we as an organisation can stand firm and be the voice and advocate for better practices and policies to fulfil children’s rights.

“To ensure that children’s voices are heard, to build partnerships and collaborate with other human rights organisations, faith-based organisations, community-based organisations, with Government and the private sector to share knowledge, influence, reach out to families and communities and build capacity to ensure children’s rights are met,”she said.
