It is with great joy to announce that Cedric Nininahazwe has joined GNP+ as the Love Alliance Global Advocacy Manager based in our Amsterdam office.
Cedric has worked with several key population and community organizations for the last 15 years with increasing responsibility and authority in each of his roles; he is joining GNP+ from Y+ Global, where he has served as the Director of Programmes, Management and Governance since 2016. Cedric brings a wealth of knowledge about advocating for change, working with communities, and holding decision-makers accountable.
‘’My advocacy experience started 15 years ago when I joined the Burundian network of young people living with HIV; throughout the journey, my passion for serving others has continued to grow along with my experience of influencing change.’’
Cedric is a lawyer by profession and has over the years built his career as a human rights activist, especially for young people, access to HIV and SRHR services, and education.
‘’My law degree has always been my intellectual weapon and source of knowledge to achieve the best of myself in human rights activism and building capacity of my fellow young leaders, I am excited to join GNP+ and the love alliance partnership, this is another opportunity for me to serve my community.’’
We are excited to have Cedric Nininahazwe on board; we believe his experience will be an added value as we invest in addressing structural barriers to SRHR, gender inequality, decriminalisation, financing for key populations, increased access to healthcare, and justice of people living with HIV and key population communities in all their diversity.
