Write something here ...
I have 20 years progressive exposure in social development practice based in the Eastern, Central and Southern African regions. I have worked for and with children, youth, women and gender programmes in the areas of policy formulation and its implementation through development programming and research. My experience based in Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo enhanced my skills in working with disdvantaged groups. I utilise my skills in communication and development studies to faclitate social transformation. I have worked for local NGO's, international development organisation and both national and international civil service.

My wiki projects
My optional community service (learning contract) project
||By signing this optional learning contract I will try to complete my training in basic wiki editing skills to achieve the status of a Wikibuddy. In return for this free training opportunity, I will give the gift of knowledge by donating or developing at least one free content resource licensed under a CC-BY-SA or CC-BY license which can be used by myself (and others) on WikiEducator.|
| Brief description of project
|| I would like to explore opportunites to maximise the benefits of policy frameworks to enhance youh participation in governance and development processes, more so, as key development partners. opportunities to provide inclusive policy formulation and implementation will be explored especially at decentralised levels to build capacities of young people to be 'owners' and 'drivers' of community development processes. Demystifing perceptions that policies can only be generated and implemented at central level and by adults only could be an avenue towards getting a larger population participating in policy formulation, advocacy and implementation processes. |
| Target date for completion
