Divine Mutesi

Position: Head of Individual Empowerment

Ms. Mutesi focused on aiding refugee and immigrant single parents, because—as a single parent herself—she knew their struggle and understood how much they need extra support to successfully care for their families. They need to be empowered and helped to face multiple challenges. Realizing that they need more support, she pivoted Ubumwe to a mission of empowering immigrant and refugee single parents to learn the skills they need to participate in the local economy, to be self-sufficient, and to flourish for the sake of raising healthy families.
