Hans-Van bergen

Advisory Board Member

Hans pursued his passion for music and education in the Netherlands, where he completed his studies in Singing and Music Teaching at the esteemed Conservatorium of Arnhem. For an entire decade, he found joy in both singing professionally within a choir and imparting musical knowledge to children.

In 1994, a new chapter began as he was appointed as a Music Professor at the Utrecht University of Applied Sciences. Over the years, this role allowed him to blossom into an educational innovator, leaving a positive impact on the institution. His journey even took him to Kakuma on several occasions, where he lent his expertise to enhance ICT in teacher training programs.

Though he has entered a well-deserved retirement, his spirit of giving back remains strong. Despite the limitations that come with this phase of life, he continues to contribute in any way he can.
