Over the past years, Khloud has gained a diverse set of skills and experience in coordinating fieldwork. Her journey began with the Egyptian Family Planning Association, where she served as a junior researcher and trainer, leading teams in data collection and analysis to address issues and find potential solutions. She then interned with the UNFPA on the safe spaces project, which aimed to integrate refugee women into Egyptian society. In this role, she was responsible for field visits, training design and facilitation, and focus group evaluation. She also had the opportunity to be involved in every aspect of the program, including stakeholder outreach, budgeting, and program planning. After that she worked as a Case Management Coordinator for unaccompanied and separated refugee and asylum-seeking children where she felt that she was able to fully realize her potential. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she led the development of a community-based support system and effectively managed her team as they responded to the needs of children without compromising the quality of their services. She is currently working with Care International where she is responsible for implementing the project within the field.
