Iva Monteiro

Iva Monteiro works as the Girls Rights and Sports Intern in the learning and resource development team, where she supports creating and implementing projects linked to girls’ economic empowerment and civic engagement.

She has a degree in public administration and has always been passionate about empowering women and girls, so she worked with the empowerment of girls through the implementation of a sport-based program to keep girls in school in Mozambique. She is a Master’s student in Gender Analysis in International Development at the University of East Anglia.

In her free time, she likes to read, get to know and learn things (especially sports) and spend time with her friends and family.
