About Justine Stewart

Justine joined Dimagi as a Field Manager in May 2019. She joined with over 6 years experience in communications and over 3 of those years in the development and NGO sector. Her career began with a small but innovative digital marketing agency based in Gansbaai. Through clients that had an investment in social upliftment and/or conservation, she discovered her passion for impact-driven work. Some of her career highlights were working with a social impact organisation that adopted a collective, evidence-based approach to alleviate the barriers to education in Philippi; with a particular focus on health, literacy and domestic abuse. She was exposed to asset-based community development, farmer managed natural regeneration, beekeeping and other sustainable initiatives during her time with an urban greening and reforestation NGO. She also has experience in CMS, facilitation, coaching, fundraising, conservation, education and she furthered her knowledge with part-time courses in Sustainable Development. She is now excited to use technology to empower rural communities with Dimagi.

She was born and raised in Johannesburg but due to her natural inclination to the ocean, Cape Town has been her base throughout her adulthood. She holds a degree in English and Media & Writing from UCT. Before starting her career she spent a year teaching English in Thailand and backpacking through South America and has continued to travel whenever possible. Outside of work she enjoys swimming, surfing, yoga, boxing, reading and spending time with loved ones.
