MyCom welcomes David Lukwesa or "Papa D," to the MyCom team! David is from Zambia, located in the Southern part of Africa. David is a 2022 Community Solutions Program Fellow and his work in America is sponsored by the US Department of State. David is focused on Women and Gender issues and using our MyCom network to complete his practicum.

While in Zambia, David worked as a Parenting Program Facilitator with Pact Zambia, an organization focused on fighting HIV/AIDS and educating people on responsible parenthood.

David is also the founder of a developing organization, Civic Engagement Network Forum, a community based Civil Society Organization. The organization will work to advocate for Zero New HIV Infections, educate and support people living with HIV, empowering women and youth, build inclusive participation in Governance and community development, and a focus on environmental conservation including access to clean water and energy resources.

Prior to his fellowship, David worked as a School Head Master for a mission sponsored school in the outskirts of Lusaka city. The school served excluded children from low-income communities providing them a quality education while lobbying for favorable policies to be enacted to promote equal-inclusion for all genders.

David is currently pursuing a B. Sc. Business Management from the University of Zambia (E-Campus) and has a Bachelor of Arts in Education (Geography & History), Certificate in Monitoring & Evaluation, a Certificate in Teaching Methodology, and a Diploma in Philosophy and Religious Studies.
