Alumnus works to mend fragile communities in North Africa

Abu Sufian Elbanan Hassan MIDP’13 was studying to become a veterinarian in Khartoum, Sudan, when he began volunteering with a local community development association. It was 2004, toward the end of the country’s brutal civil war in South Sudan and the beginning of another conflict in the region of Darfur. Hassan was one of many who felt compelled to be part of the solution.
