Nele Claeys

  • Ghent, Belgium
  • 40 years old

Friends say that Nele is the most curious type of the club. It is this curiosity that made her decide to take a Master in African Studies and discover this lively continent full of contrasts.

Currently, Nele works part time for the NGO Rikolto as international communications coordinator. She’s also active for Voices that Count, a network of freelancers that uses narrative methods to understand realities that drive social change.

Nele lives in Ghent, Belgium, and you can often find her in one of the OR coffee bars, to enjoy a Kivu coffee and reconnect with the amazing nature and people in that part of Africa.
