Salomon Kabongo-Kooper is the executive director of the Paris based NGO, Serve the City Paris. Serve the City Paris seeks to serve out-of-reach Parisians and less fortunate communities in Paris by providing relief in practical methods, making both short term and long term progress in the lives of the less fortunate by encouraging volunteers to serve in simple ways.
After recently assuming the role, a profound difference is already being felt through the ranks at STCParis. Salomon spends time serving and volunteering with other associations and partners, traveling to the EU and UN institutions to advocate for migrants, human rights, and raising awareness to combat human-trafficking and sexual exploitation of women. He is as much a fervent supporter of human right as he is for women and girls’ rights for education. He also aids and oversees a grassroots education project for children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Senegal.
Salomon brings experience from his positions as an intern, associate, and assistant development director at various NGO’s in Chicago and New York. Salomon attended Judson University, studied at Paris II Assas, and a graduate of McGill University in law. A member of the New York Bar and the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division.
