Eleanor DuPlooy

Eleanor du Plooy is Project Leader for the Ashley Kriel Youth Leadership Development Project. She attended Stellenbosch University and majored in Anthropology, English and Psychology. Her anthropological training and extensive experience doing fieldwork have equipped her with the skills to interact with a wide range of people on various issues. She believes in the transformative power of the youth and through her work at IJR endeavours to provide platforms through which they can make their voices heard. As an expressionist, she values the importance of dialogue and recognises the need to engage in meaningful exchanges, particularly with those who we have come to view as different from ourselves. When Eleanor is not working she enjoys spending her time hiking, reading, and writing poetry.
