Welcome to ProjectAide

Technical Assistance and Project Management in Fragile Contexts

Welcome to ProjectAide! Working at the intersection of humanitarian, development and peace-building sectors, ProjectAide enables clients to achieve programmatic impact regardless of the context in which they operate and despite any internal capacity bottlenecks they face. Building on over 20 years of experience in project development, project management and programme leadership in the most fragile and volatile contexts, ProjectAide supports clients with hands-on grants and service contract management, strategic planning and business development.

Why dandelion as a logo? With the mission of providing technical and project management support to clients whenever and wherever they may require it, dandelion's botanic features are both an inspiration and a metaphor for what ProjectAide strives to accomplish. Why is that? Dandelion, with their golden flowers in the early spring,  represents the return of life after a harsh winter, and as such it is a display of abundant strength and power as they tolerate a wide range of conditions. The impact of the fragile puffball is far-reaching as the head flies away spreading the seeds of dandelion up to a couple hundred kilometers away!





About ProjectAide

About Me


Senior Project Manager & Team Leader

My name is Halina Weyers. I am passionate about helping clients manage their projects when circumstances do not allow them to do it in-house. I work as a freelance consultant and as part of global teams for the private sector, NGOs, foundations, and government clients.

Bio
I was born and raised in Poland, in the beautiful city of Wroclaw. As a 16 year old, I went to complete my high school education abroad, at an international boarding school in Oxford, UK. Having studied and shared a life with people from over 100 countries of diverse ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds was a life-changing experience (to say the least) , which inspired me to continue with international higher education in Germany and the United States - and motivated my professional career choices thereafter. Since the early 2000s, I have worked at headquarters and in the field for various international, multi-mandated humanitarian, development and human rights and advocacy organizations and private sector companies including: Amnesty International, medico international, CBM International, The Fred Hollows Foundation, World Vision, and management4health.

I have lived and/or worked extensively in West Africa (Burkina Faso, Benin, Ghana, Liberia, Niger, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Togo), the Horn of Africa (Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia), Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo; in the Middle East (Jordan, Palestine, United Arab Emirates), as well as in Asia (Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar).

My present and past portfolio of projects includes grants, service contracts and framework contracts funded by the German Development Cooperation (GIZ, BMZ), German Federal Foreign Office, KfW, EU, ECHO, Multidonor Trustfunds, SIDA, UN, World Bank,  and many others.  

I like to think of myself as a “generalist”, who has a high affinity for numbers and data-based evidence on the one hand, and for facilitation, coordination, and team-formation & leadership on the other. I thrive the most when faced with a complex problem that requires structured yet pragmatic thinking and facilitated teamwork.

I speak fluent German, English and Polish and intermediary French.
