Harouna does excellent work with the communities in West Africa. He will start off with UFacilitate as a Journeyer, where he will be exposed to tools and techniques to help structure his facilitation. Once he has more knowledge of these, he will work collaboratively with project leads (senior facilitators) to implement and refine his skills.

Note: Internet is an issue where Harouna is, and he will need to figure out how to solve that so as to benefit from the UFacilitate Community.
