Noel Haynes

“Empowering others!”

Noel has more than 15 years of experience within the investment banking industry, with a focus on corporate advisory, FX derivatives and equities. He has extensive knowledge of complex financial structures and products within debt and capital markets and is now focused on project development within the renewable energy sector. He has BA Economics and MSc Mathematical Trading and Finance from Cass Business School, London. Noel is working with Robert in Uganda who runs a private school.

“I volunteered because I wanted to contribute to the growth of Africa directly rather than donate money to a cause. I have found that spoken communication is difficult due to poor mobile phone signals and the frequency that Robert can get to an internet cafe.  However we have still managed to pin down the main issues Robert is dealing with and are focusing on the financial sustainability of the company. I have worked closely with the Grow team in Uganda to help me with any cultural differences that I have faced and to also understand more about the local landscape.”

What would you say to other volunteers thinking about joining Grow Movement?

"Understand why you want to do it. Make sure it's for the right reasons and commit to it."
