“You can call me Danny...”

Watch this film to meet Danny Sriskandarajah, who joins as Oxfam GB's new chief executive in January 2019. Here Danny shares his unique story, how it has shaped his drive to push for a world free from the injustice of poverty and why he is passionate about helping to shape a new vision for Oxfam.

I couldn't think of a better platform than Oxfam to fight for a fairer, more just world.

About Danny
