Brice Ndayisenga, At Large
Experience: I believe education is a core necessity in ending global poverty and promoting social justice around the world. Education is a fundamental human right and an indispensable basis for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable society. LearningWorks promotes innovative, alternative and inclusive education to build a thriving community in which ALL learners realize their potential. I feel great joy giving back to our community through Learning Works’ programs.
