Ousmane Kane is a young Senegalese community leader currently serving as a CorpsAfrica Exchange Volunteer in Bame (Volta region), a rural community in Ghana. Born and raised in Pikine (Dakar), Ousmane was always passionate about community development and committed to making a positive difference in his community and beyond.
