Usman currently works as a project supervisor at Ehealth Africa. He holds a B.S. in Zoology from Bayero University in Kano, Nigeria. He has done multi-disciplinary work in aids prevention, women’s health and women’s empowerment, environment and food sustainability, and inter-faith peace-making, for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, UNESCO, and several NGOs.
Usman was born in 1979 into a Muslim family as one of 17 children. His father decided to adopt two young Christian girls. The impact of that experience helped steer Usman onto his current path. He lives today as a devout Muslim with his wife and their three young children.
