Oliver Barry

Oliver, a native of New York, has had many experiences in Africa and a passion for helping children. He is a proud graduate of the Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Connecticut (2001), of Princeton University (2005) and Yale School of Medicine (M.D., M.H.S., 2012).

After graduating from Princeton, Oliver was accepted into the Princeton-in-Africa fellowship program, which provided a year-long grant for development work in Africa. As Princeton-in-Africa, Oliver worked for Africare, a U.S.-based non-profit organization, in Luska, Zambia. He specifically worked on for an Africare program that sought to prevent and mitigate the social, medical and economic consequences of HIV/AIDS for children throughout Zambia. During his time at Africare, Oliver saw great potential in many children but realized the dire need for access to quality education. He felt compelled to do more for these children and helped to found Kucetekela Foundation. He works for Kucetekela Foundation in New York, and is primarily responsible for the fundraising activities of the organization. He also assists with the general administration and financial management of the foundation's funds as well as programmatic activities.

Oliver is a pediatrician and is completing his residency training at Columbia University and Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital of New York.
