I run a community centre called Wilsen Initiative (Wi) (www.wilseninitiative.wordpress.com) which seeks to Inspire, Connect and Educate (ICE) youth in skills and knowledge that address gaps within the society, especially amongst the youth in informal settlements. Our greatest tools at Wilsen Initiative (WI) is Talent and Skills utilization through which we encourage young people to believe in themselves and be agents of change, using the philosophy of change that starts from within.
Through vast community networks and my active participation in Education For Sustainable Development (ESD) and using football and ICT as the tool, I commit to be being an ambassador in the dissemination of information to the grassroots level. I’m a passionate global citizen and I embrace diversity through interaction with diverse communities. I have lived in Zanzibar for seven months, Germany two months, in Norway for a three week exchange program in 1997, 1998 and 1999 respectively and many more.
I would love to build on these experiences by combining my passion for sports, leadership, technology and youth empowerment with my interest in interacting, and sharing knowledge with people from different cultures and backgrounds towards making the World a better place.
