Say hello to Echo’s newest board member! 

Echo International Aid would like to welcome its newest board member, Emma McDonald.

Emma is a Masters of Teaching (Secondary) student at the University of Melbourne with a background in publishing and the Australian not-for-profit sector. She teaches at a free school for disadvantaged children in Kathmandu called EDUC and is heading an international project team to construct a brand new, earthquake-safe building (the current building was hit by last year’s quake). Emma is passionate about the intersection of education, creativity and social disadvantage.

The EDUC building project is now a formal project of Echo International Aid. The project is also an exciting partnership between Architects Without Frontiers Australia and Sydney-based architecture firm HDR Rice Daubney. One of HDR Rice Daubney’s senior architects, David Anderson, has been leading a team of architects who have been working around the clock to finalise the school’s new building design – all pro bono.

For more information about the project or to donate, head to the project page here.
