Katrina Boratko

Communications Manager at Mama Hope

Katrina is the Communications Manager at Mama Hope. She strongly believes that authentic, community-driven storytelling inspires lasting social change. Her goal at MAMA HOPE is to amplify the voices of grassroots communities by facilitating powerful media partnerships, incubating deep connections between aspiring storytellers and innovative grassroots leaders to co-create powerful projects while reinforcing local capacity and training the next generation of the social impact workforce to reject top-down, pity-based marketing strategies. 

She began working with Mama Hope in 2012 as a fellow in their first Global Advocate class working closely with community partners in Kenya and Tanzania. Her previous experience includes working in refugee resettlement with the International Rescue Committee, running fundraising campaigns for We Women of Burma in Thailand, and supporting the Executive Director of SF’s Women’s Initiative for Self-Employment. She graduated from Santa Clara University with a BS in Political Science and African Studies.

She’s obsessed with podcasts, cycling, and exploring hiking trails and craft breweries of Northern California.
