Gerald is a Tanzanian young person with considerable experience volunteering for youth-driven organisations. Since joining the Raleigh Tanzania team as a Youth Development Officer in early 2019, his passion for youth and global development has been given a platform from which he can support other youth to take daily action. Gerald has recently moved to the role of Project Coordinator for national youth projects.
Before working at Raleigh Tanzania, Gerald volunteered with Raleigh as a Team Leader and Deputy Operations Manager for two years. This experience was a bridge for linking theory learned from his bachelor’s degree in Adult and Community Education, to practice, delivering youth-led development projects. Working with youth has inspired him to discover the real meaning and value of youth in a world population of 7.7 billion.
His journey working with young people on addressing global development issues is still in its early stages but he is dedicated to ensuring young people are at the front when it comes to leading global change.
