I have engaged in a number of extension and outreach programs. Over the last 5years, I have developed experience in running an NGO that seek to teach leadership to youths and teenagers across rural communities in Africa. Through this Organization, I have spoken to and mentored over 1,500 secondary school students on the subject of leadership and personal development and developed a community of leaders who come together to share developmental ideas and carry out social works and outreaches.
