Prior to joining Doctors Worldwide, Monowara held numerous senior executive roles leading not-for-profit organisations within the humanitarian sector including development education, campaigning and advocacy, and a consortium of large and medium iNGOs. She has produced a variety of award-winning resources and training courses on development and change, and has been working in the NGO sector for more than 17 years. Monowara has experience in leading and designing development projects and advocated long-term resilience responses in disaster management, localisation and healthcare with multilateral stakeholders and governments around the world.

Inspired by faith and humanity, the principles that drive me and which I dedicate my life to, are justice, equality and compassion. In a time where hearts continue to be divided and resources amassed by a few, now more than ever do we all have a responsibility to play our part in ensuring a just and fair world for everyone. Doctors Worldwide is a platform to do just that; to be part of a change or movement towards a world that is equal in all respects - health, wealth, and opportunities. I am humbled and honoured to be at the helm of an organisation that is driven by integrity, excellence and collaboration; values which are at the foundation of a flourishing world that unites hearts, ensures equality, and presents the very best of perfected human character.

One of the reasons why I love working at Doctors Worldwide is because I have an opportunity to contribute towards making the world a better place. The other reason is the inspiring people that surround me at Doctors Worldwide - they are all genuine individuals who are incredibly kind, and have a shared solidarity in helping people with humbleness and service. The diversity in the organisation is also inspiring - people from all walks of life working together representing a global community. It is a big responsibility and privilege to be part of an organisation like Doctors Worldwide, and every day is a reminder that we all have a duty to work towards a fair and just world for everyone.
