After a country-wide search, several interviews and meetings, and a lot of consultation with local leaders, WAVS is happy to introduce Almamo Danfa as the new director of the WAVS school in Canchungo. Almamo, 28, has worked as the director of a Christian elementary school since 2009 and has been a teacher for more than five years. He finishes his degree in teacher science, or pedagogy, this spring from a university in the country’s capital, Bissau. He’s proven himself to be a strong and creative leader who clearly understands the vision of WAVS. He has already served as the vice president of a local governing body of WAVS for two years.
I’m excited about the energy, experience and resourcefulness Almamo will bring to the school and look forward to telling you more about the work that he and our other dedicated staff are doing in Guinea-Bissau. Please join me in welcoming Almamo to WAVS.
