DSF Alumnus Equips Community with Resources

DSF Alumnus Ousman Ba is helping families navigate systems to ensure they are receiving critical services during the COVID-19 outbreak. As remote learning is taking place and employment is impacted, Ousman helps organize outreach to community members in need in his role as program coordinator for the African Leadership Group (ALG).

“Every Friday for the past three weeks, we’ve delivered 150 sandwiches to some of our community members,” shares Ousman. “We send out a weekly newsletter that provides community members with resources available amid COVID-19.”

Ousman has also helped organize ALG’s Virtual Business Summit, which took place on April 18. The virtual conference offered attendees expert guidance on navigating the business and economic environment during the pandemic.

Ousman is also a member of the DSF Alumni Advisory Committee (AAC).
