Founder and Artistic Director
Founded in 2005, ITLP uses theatre as a means of
social uplift for children and young people living with the
challenges of poverty, crime, violence, gender inequity and
inequality in developing countries.
ITLP brings theatre artists to developing countries to conduct theatre workshops to teach English language proficiency, develop independent thinking, self-empowerment and gender equity. We strive to help underserved young people advance their educational and employment opportunities and nurtutre their voices as leaders to enable growth, change and community development.
