He volunteered for one of the most reputable organizations “Community Development “as a Case Worker who determined the funding process of families.

He gave sessions about avoiding violence in schools after having the needed training.

He joined the UNAIDS program as a Social Mobilization and Youth Coordinator for one year during his Lazord fellowship which enhanced his skills in communication, PR, M&E, organization, collaboration, writing analytical reports, strategic planning, management, assessment, technical support for a governmental organization or NGO’s.
