Until early this year David was working at the Horticultural Homegrown Farm Hospital where he has been since 2004.

His vision for compassionate outreach to the desperate and needy in the rural villages has grown from establishing House of Hope Orphans Support in 2001 to community transformation projects that will empower the community to become independent and responsible to address the needs of their own communities. He is currently overseeing programs for 350 children and vulnerable children in Kandaria, to support and provide complete schooling, and also get the basic needs to ensure health and growth. He reaches the communities with the gospel by organizing mobile medical clinics, evangelism outreach, and helping with the orphans. He is an outstanding speaker in seminars, churches and school. He facilitates workshops for community leaders and our partner organizations on transformation projects and trainings that will empower communities in Africa. His vision to see a holistic transformation in Africa has led him to serve with Unite 4 Africa, Inc., to equip leaders of different level starting at the grassroot village, unite Africans to work together and take full responsibility of African transformation as we partner with the rest to make the world a better place, one village at a time.
