He has studied some professional HSE and entrepreneurship courses. He has also studied courses on GBV and other courses through the IOM GBV campus. He loves to volunteer for causes. He previously volunteered to raise awareness for HIV/AIDS in 2011 and 2012.
Christian was reintegrated with drinks and foodstuff sales in his collective group. He traveled in 2015 and returned in May 2017. He is one of the founders of a returnees group called "Migrants Voices," with about 60 active returnees in Lagos and South West. They carry out their campaigns mostly in churches.

Returned migrants play a central role as Volunteers in the development, planning and implementation of the Migrants as Messengers campaign.

Through their stories, the learnings from their migratory experiences and their creativity, MaM Volunteers are the principal authors and actors of the campaign. From 2019-2022, a community of more than 300 volunteers across 7 countries will develop and grow. This community will also have access to diversified training and capacity-building opportunities and be invited to regular activities to support the development of an organic and sustainable community. Female engagement plays an important role within the MaM Volunteer community as they will take the lead in shaping women-to-women dialogue sessions and engaging female audiences more generally.
