I am a Sociologist with success in public & development program management that encomp@es all cycles/stages of

development programs which starts from need identification to monitoring and evaluation. I have mastery in

program development, program management, personnel management, program coordination with professional and

practical knowledge/skill in project design, implementation, monitoring & evaluation and mobilization of gr@ root

community and local authorities. Most of the targets in my past carrier are children, youth, women and other

disadvantaged social groups. During my stay with the organizations, I worked for, I have conducted various

participatory base line @essments, project planning and program impact @essments. I have also gained an

opportunity to different kinds of trainings including PRA techniques, program management and the like. I have

gained an opportunity to work field level program coordination in the UN organization - UNHABITAT focusing of

youth programs. Now, I am serving NEP+ as a Program Manager/Principal investigator for CDC ART adherence case

management program and overall programs at national level.
