Gala Speaker Bio – Sarah Custer Lalanne, Director of Global WASH

Based in Dakar, Senegal, Sarah brings 15 years of experience – including a decade in Sub-Saharan Africa – working on programs aiming to create inclusive and sustainable markets and healthy communities.

Sarah has experience in various areas such as research, design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation. She previously managed sanitation and hygiene programs in Madagascar for UNICEF and has also worked with the World Bank to support small businesses and contributed to the generation of reliable evidence on gender disparities in productivity.

When she is not working to solve complex problems, you can find her painting or traveling to far-flung places with her husband and their two curious and adventurous girls.
