Dinisse Sylva is passionate about community and rural development. He holds a Master’s degree in Management of Local and Community Development Programs and Projects. Very early on he held positions of responsibility as President of the organization of the Catholic Youth Association of Saint CHARLES LWANGA in 2005. His love for a job well done and selflessness sent him to the Boy Scouts of the 7th group of Dakar in the Saint Abraham parish for further training. In 2009, Dinisse became Secretary General of the youth of Kadjindiassa, his native village, before becoming Treasurer of the association in 2013. After graduating in 2009, he was President of the student association of the Catholic University of West Africa in 2011 and obtained his professional license in business management in 2012. Dinisse completed several internships in 2013 at the Rural Development Support Program of Casamance (PADERCA) with the project monitoring and evaluation manager and at Allianz Assurance (as a sales agent and executive assistant) in 2014. During his internship, he held the position of President of the Youth Pastoral Coordination (CPJ) at the parish of Notre Dame des Pauvre in Tiléne Ziguinchor, where he coordinated religious events that bring together the young people of the parish. In 2016, Dinisse joined CorpsAfrica/Senegal as a Volunteer and was assigned to Soudiane Thiéléme, a village in the town of DJILASS in the Fatick region. During his year of service, Dinisse piloted the rice project for 30 households of the Agricultural Sector Support Program in the village as part of the fight for food self-sufficiency for the benefit of the women’s group. He also set up a library to improve the educational level of about 145 students per year at Soudiane Thieleme elementary school. After his service, Dinisse has been called since 2018 in the CorpsAfrica office to support the coordination and bring his expertise in the design and management of community development projects to support Volunteers in the field.
