Sakara joined Women in Sport in July 2023 as a Fundraising Officer. As our resident Kiwi, she is a dynamic fundraiser who is helping build and elevate our fundraising efforts and supporter engagement during this exciting phase of growth for the charity.

Her journey in the non-profit sector has provided her with valuable experience volunteering with various organisations. She has also worked in government and legal roles and will bring a multidimensional perspective to her work.

Now, as part of her role in Women in Sport, her goal is to contribute with the organisation to help work towards a future where gender equality is at the forefront of the sporting world. By bolstering revenue and capacity she believes we can create a lasting impact and ensure that women and girls have equal opportunity to pursue their sporting dreams!
