Welcome to “On What Matters,” a conversation series in which Ford Foundation leaders talk to our social justice grantees on the frontlines of change.

In this episode, Martín Abregú, Ford’s vice president of international programs, interviews Degan Ali, executive director of Adeso, an African organization that is changing the way people think about and deliver humanitarian aid. 

Degan outlines the importance of people on the ground leading development initiatives and the ways we can rethink the global structure of providing aid.
