Benard brings years of experience working within refugee settlements to his position as ChildVoice’s Project Manager at Imvepi Settlement in northern Uganda. While working with other NGOs in similar settings, Benard focused on the Child Protection and Livelihood & Agriculture sectors. He is a child-protection and women’s-rights activist whose heart is for creating positive change within refugee communities by helping people gain access to resources, encouraging education, and guiding them toward self-sustainable lives. Benard’s wife has a similar position with another NGO in Uganda serving refugees. They are the proud parents of two “strong young boys.”
