Senior Advisor, The Movement for Community-Led Development


Ann Hendrix-Jenkins has more than 32 years of experience in international development, dating way back to her first foray abroad as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Botswana. Since, her work has taken her to dozens of countries as a facilitator, teacher and trainer; program designer and manager; researcher; grant manager; and more. Increasingly her work focused on capacity development and sustainability, based on mutually satisfying partnerships among adults, community-led development, appreciative approaches, and shared joy. Ann has worked on many kinds of programs: maternal, newborn, and child health; HIV, TB, and pandemic influenza; nutrition; social inclusion and empowerment for women, people with disabilities, and all people; livelihoods; microfinance; and governance. She sees a future that benefits from state-of-the-art approaches to capacity development and sustainability, including systemic approaches; inclusive engagement; and true co-creation from the very beginning.

Ms. Hendrix-Jenkins has created and authored a wide range of tools, articles and other media. Her favorites were a book called Games for Adolescent Reproductive Health: An International Handbook and Safari of Life, a board game for young people produced in four languages. She has designed and managed many innovative programs and projects over the years. She earned a master’s degree in International Development from American University, and a bachelors in Literature and Art from Tulane University. Recently she earned certificates in Systems Thinking and Data Visualization.
