Meet Patrick

In case you missed the latest issue, here's our first article featuring Tulibagenyi Patrick--UVP's Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Program Manager.

Patrick in the UVP office
Patrick worked as a classroom teacher before moving to media where he was a manager of a local radio station. Patrick entered the NGO world in 2005, working directly with communities implementing health related activities. He's well-prepared for all these roles with a diploma in project planning and management and a degree in mass communication. In 2007, he started working with UVP on a part-time basis and was hired full-time in 2008 as the Shallow Well Project Coordinator. Besides the shallow well project, he helps support the internship program and other administrative tasks. Patrick also writes stories for the monthly newsletter.

Patrick likes his job because it has exposed him to many people of different walks of life both locally and internationally, giving him a global understanding of humanity and how best to help disadvantaged communities. During Patrick’s stay with UVP, he has seen it steadily grow: from one in-country staff person to six staff members, from a 15 square foot office room to a small office duplex, and above all, year by year helping more than 50 communities access safe water sources.

Besides working with UVP, Patrick manages a music project for children, plays the guitar and piano, and enjoys swimming. His dream career is movie making.
