Mizuyori Tomoko (44, alumna Employment and Labour Studies)

“Mizu – my nickname – means water in Japanese. That can’t be a coincidence, because I’ve been fascinated with water-related projects throughout my life and career. If it’s about water and people, it’s for me, I always say.
After I graduated from ISS, I went back to Japan to work as a development consultant. I’ve been involved in various development projects: Child Labour, HIVAids, Youth Development, etc. However, the water related projects – such as flood management and urban planning – remained my core interest. Currently I’m working on a project for urban development in Senegal. I coordinate public consultation to work with the local stakeholder. Facilitating and mobilising people to continue the work so that they can grow and become less dependent – that’s what counts for me.
I believe that ultimately we are all making it happen, because it doesn’t matter what you do, whether you work for a profit or a non-profit organisation, or are a surgeon or a truck driver. We all contribute to society in our own ways.”
