Staff Team

We have a small part-time staff team with 4 members based in Cardiff and one in Lesotho.


Veronica German
Executive Director


Veronica  joined Dolen in 2011 following a period of time as an Assembly Member in The National Assembly for Wales where she was the Shadow Minister for Health and Local Government and Equalities. 

She studied Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at Aston and Birmingham Universities.  Veronica went on to teach Physics in a bid to persuade more girls to study engineering.

She was a Board Member/Trustee of Wales for Africa Health Links Network until 2019 and is still involved with the network.

In her spare time she sings with City Voices Cardiff- which helps to keep her sane!



Sharon Flint
Education Officer


Sharon began her journey with Dolen in 2013 when she volunteered as Mentor on the Lesotho Teacher Placement Programme.

After returning to Lesotho to co-lead the award winning Lesotho Literacy Leap programme in 2014 and work with Lesotho College of Education as part of the International Learning Opportunities programme she decided to change her career direction and join the International Development sector. She left her Art & Design teaching career behind and is currently responsible for our Education Programmes in Wales and Lesotho where she manages our teacher mentoring and school linking programmes.
