Seydou Kinda

Solar Project Coordinator and Oak Leader for Burkina Faso

KindaSeydou’s background is in nursing and public health. He is currently the Chief Administrator of Health Centre 24 of Ouezzinville, Burkina Faso, where he is responsible for statistical analysis and planning and monitoring patient care. Beyond his current management experience, his career has included monitoring and managing various community health programs (for vulnerable groups, immunization, etc.), evaluating the treatment of neglected tropical diseases, coordinating health care education and training programs, as well as other initiatives.

In January 2017, Seydou enrolled in a two-year, part-time continuing education program to advance his skills and obtain certification as a Public Health Agent.

Seydou has successfully collaborated with various organizations outside of Burkina Faso, including the American Peace Corps, the University of Hertfordshire, the Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (Alberta, Canada) and Elluminate Inc. (Calgary, Alberta, Canada). Members of the TSO executive met Seydou when they were Elluminate employees and collaborated with him on an online training program for Burkina Faso nurses in the management of malaria. Among the projects he completed with the Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School was a solar energy project, providing electricity to a remote village school in Burkina Faso, making him well qualified as TSO’s Solar Project Coordinator in Burkina Faso. (Read about our solar project at the Heredougou School.)

Seydou is multilingual, speaking his native Mooré and Dioula, as well as French and some English. He holds diplomas in Nursing and Marketing Management and a degree in Management and has taken various courses in Human Resource and Public Health management.
