Ivan Turyahebwa

My name is Ivan Turyahebwa. Am 29 and i come from Uganda but apparently i reside here in the United States.

I graduated from kyambogo University in 2011 with a bachelors honors degree in Adult and Community Education and from then i went on to work and serve in different managerial positions both as an Outreach Community Development Officer and as a full time community volunteer in the slums and ghetto's of Uganda.

Throughout my last 5 years of office both working as a full time field worker and as a volunteer, i was able to successfully champion for different community activities and projects, a skill which enabled me to continue feeling the need of reaching out to make a difference in someone's life

Ever since then, my interest and passion as a professional community development worker has remained in reaching out to make a huge positive difference in our communities. My personal desires to continue working and serving as a humanitarian, has led me to remain active towards community service and i have also used it as a platform to work and participate with different groups of people which has led to the birth of my first online social group on Facebook called Enviro-friendly Volunteers Network Uganda, a platform of volunteers from all corners of world coming together on one platform to share knowledge and skills on how environmental awareness can be improved.
