Why did I join HIFA? Video series

Here is the latest video, from Jackeline Alger, Honduras (November 2018). See here for a description of the series and other videos in the collection. 

The HIFA forums do not carry attachments. HIFA members are encouraged to upload files to their own websites and provide URL. Where this is not practical, HIFA members may ask the HIFA moderator to upload files temporarily to this page.  

Members have many reasons for joining HIFA, so we're creating an exciting new video series telling you about these reasons.  Some are personal, others are linked to work or careers. 
These videos will help encourage others to join HIFA and increase awareness of HIFA and its activities. They also give members a chance to talk about what matters to them. By being shared among work colleagues and work partners the videos can also be used as tools to encourage membership. 
We'd really like to hear your story: If you're a HIFA member and would like to add your story about joining HIFA to that of others, please contact us. We can provide technical support to help develop your story and the final video. Not yet a HIFA member? Join here (free).
About the videos: Videos are developed by HIFA member and volunteer Ben Nicholls, with assistance from our Social Media Working Group. All videos are published under a Creative Commons license (Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0) unless otherwise stated.
