He is passionate about youth empowerment and has worked across initiatives promoting youth participation in governance and decision making, youth unemployment and economic opportunities, gender equality and social accountability.  He has led a number of initiatives in the past to advocate for increased investments in youth development and improvement in employment conditions of head potters and other youth which create economic vulnerabilities that are exploited for abuse.
