Our Culture. Our Words. Our Message.
Joel Biyinzika, Founder and Director, HACF
If anyone understands the power of education to transform lives, it’s Joel. Though Joel’s early years were marked by trauma and desperation, he found solace and hope at school. His education opened many doors for him, including a job in parliament which gave him connections and opportunities he never dreamed he would have.
Joel is passionate about breaking the cycles of dysfunction in his culture and bringing about social change. He believes the best way to do this is to focus on teaching children a new, healthier way to live and giving them the opportunities and skills to step into their full potential. Hope for African Child Foundation was birthed out of this desire and for this purpose.
Joel currently lives in Bujagali, in the Jinja district of Uganda. He loves travel and meeting new people, and is an avid reader.
