We are delighted to announce Pamella Lessa as our new Director on the ground in Rio. She brings with her a wealth of experience. Growing up in Rio de Janeiro, she graduated from the State University of Rio de Janeiro before working as a technician in the Brazilian Navy. She progressed to working for several multinationals, before working in the non-profit sector. Her technical knowledge and enormous experience will make a huge impact on the way ACE Projects functions, and her own social collective (Pretas Ruas) that helps black women on the streets of Brazil will bring a new angle to the work we do. She has always fought to empower people to improve the society they are a part of, and we are delighted she has become a part of ours.
