Ray Taylor, the other co-founder of ALLFED, focuses on research amplification/implementation, preparedness and recovery. He comes from a health, international development and disaster preparedness background.
At FJKM, a large Madagascar NGO, he worked on vaccine promotion, vetiver and involved church networks and development NGOs in cyclones preparedness and response. Since Madagascar is like a world in itself, this work led to the idea of doing something similar at global scale.
After the fall of the Berlin Wall, he was a consultant in eastern Europe for UK and EU funding and knowledge transfer.
Currently Ray shares his time between Oxford, UK, where works as our coordinator on food importing countries, financial mechanisms, response planning and preparedness, and Chennai, India, where he coordinates our South Asia programme.
Outside of ALLFED, Ray also works with the international Nonviolent Communication network as a project coach, especially for Global South countries, and has developed a 24/7 response network.
