After completing nursing training at the Mulago School of Nursing and Midwifery, Abubaker joined Uganda Martyrs university where he graduated with a Bachelor of Public Health and Health Promotion. Shortly after graduating, he joined the Living Goods organization as a Community Health Supervisor of digitally enabled Community Health workers trained in Integrated Community Case Management of childhood illnesses(ICCM). Later, Abubaker served as the Expansion Coordinator in the same organization, scaling the organization model to new districts across the country through creating partnerships with local governments. Then, he was appointed as DEI champion in the same organization tasked to respond to all Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion related issues among staff. When COVID-19 was declared a public health emergency of international concern, Abubaker explored new ways of working by joining the Rhize Global coaching fellowship as a Fellow. This gave him an opportunity to be accepted as a Mentor of grassroots leaders and organizers. He is excited about his new role as a Community Solutions Program Fellow at LeadMN.
Abubaker knows we are working in a diverse world with people from different backgrounds and technological know-how. He is excited to move this journey of lifelong learning, as well as understanding various diversities and how they play a role in social justice work.
Abubaker is a lover of sight-seeing and long travels. He enjoys books and building his capacity to be a better leader, hence a desire to further his education by joining a graduate program.
