Profile: BerniceYalley

International Development Professional

Bernice is an international development professional with an advanced degree and specialization in environmental science and policy from Columbia University. A former Peace Corps Volunteer in Benin, West Africa, Bernice has lived and worked in several sub-Saharan African nations including, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Niger, Ghana and Senegal. In Liberia, with an international non-governmental organization, Bernice helped to establish an independent women’s cloth-dyeing business and managed a nascent microfinance initiative for over 600 people in 23 villages. In Niger, she assisted with emergency food programming during a severe drought. Through her work overseas, Bernice maintains that sustainable international development is both complex and rewarding and that the developing world does not need sympathy, but investment and jobs. She is eager that international development shifts from a paradigm of managing poverty to creating sustainable wealth.
