Isaac holds a Master’s Degree in Counseling and has 20 years of experience working in a variety of roles connected to this field. He has worked for several nonprofit organizations and is currently a clinician for people with behavioral health issues. Issac is from Nigeria, has lived in the Middle East, has extensive experience working overseas,
and currently resides in the U.S. Growing up in Nigeria, he witnessed the abuse of people with disabilities due to similar belief systems we encounter in Kenya. As our only U.S. board member who is not an American, Issac can see western cultural influences in our decision-making and, in bringing these to our attention, helps to reduce bias and expand Kupenda’s cross-cultural sensitivities. Isaac’s compassion for people with disabilities and his unique international experiences are invaluable to our work!
