Ann Carl Bailey
Ann Carl Bailey graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Business Management Honors from the Ateneo de Naga University. Prior to joining SEDPI, she first worked as a business process associate for an insurance company. She later realized that her interests lie in development sector so she got involved with the eSkwela Project, a UNESCO Awardee for Non-Formal Education whose focus is on information & communications technology integration for the education of out-of-school youth all over the Philippines. She also handled Financial Education and Skills Training for street children in Metro Manila under Childhope Asia Philippines and served as a Senior Development Associate for Ayala Foundation’s Technology Business Incubator for budding technopreneurs.
Carl also had her share of volunteer work at the Sarvodaya Sharmadana Societies’ orphanage in Moratuwa, Sri Lanka back in 2010. Furthermore, she was amongst the 15 people from around the world who was granted a 3-month fellowship in New York. This fellowship was under the Teaching Project of the Dekeyser & Friends Foundation in partnership with Green Chimneys which aims to restore possibilities and creating futures for children with emotional, behavioral, social and learning challenges through educational, therapeutic and outreach activities with the integration of animal Assisted Therapy.
Currently, Carl is taking her Masters Degree in Industrial Relations at the University of the Philippines – Diliman. At SEDPI, she is involved in the planning, organizing, monitoring, and evaluation of development interventions, such as capacity building programs and technical assistance, introduced to partner social enterprises and other development organizations. She hopes that by taking part in organizations that work for a cause, she too can make a difference to one person at a time.
