    Biography

    Daryl Yoder-Bontrager is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Delaware’s Disaster Science and Management Program. He worked for over 20 years in humanitarian assistance and community development work with Mennonite Central Committee in its Latin America programs, beginning with a four-year assignment living and working in a small barrio outside of Santa Cruz, Bolivia which was formed after the land where the community’s residents had lived along the Rio Pirai was condemned, forcing all to relocate to the outskirts of the city. Later Yoder-Bontrager and his family lived for four years in Tegucigalpa, Honduras where he directed the organization’s programs there. Following that Yoder-Bontrager worked for 15 years as the director of Latin American and Caribbean programs. He was involved in leading the organization’s responses to Hurricane Mitch in Central America in 1998 and the 2010 Haiti earthquake, as well as countless smaller disasters in the region. Since leaving MCC he has pursued graduate studies, as well as doing some teaching. His research has consistently explored how nongovernmental organizations carry out their disaster-related work. He has two adult children and two young grandchildren. In his spare time he enjoys cooking, making wine, gardening, biking, running and playing with grandchildren.
