Awel UwihanganyeFounder & Senior Director

Awel Uwihanganye is an accomplished management & leadership specialist with expert skills in executive management, communications and public relations, resource mobilization, diplomacy, and leadership development. 

As a founder of several change initiatives, he is keenly interested in entrepreneurship, in the power of ideas, to change lives, shape society, and advance development, and “envisions Africa as a frontier for opportunity and growth with a confident, self-aware generation of rising African leaders at the center of this renaissance”.

He is a proud alumnus of Concordia University-Montreal Canada, a privileged fellow of the African Leadership Initiative—East Africa, and a Member of the Aspen Institute’s Global Leadership Network.

A key lesson Awel likes to share: “I have found that when you commit yourself to do good, create value, innovate, and serve society, a lot of good follows. In my case, my contribution to the cause of Africa, humanity, and the world has come with a lot of opportunities and accolades, which in turn challenge me to do more in adding value to the world.”
