Prior to joining GHC, Mutabi worked as an Editorial Assistant for WeBloom Africa, the world’s first hub for gender-lens investing in Africa. There she supported the programming and operations of WeBloom Voices, a six-month-long program for young and aspiring journalists to receive multimedia training and the opportunity to get their stories published. She interned with Child Fund as a Community Development Facilitator and with Makeni Clinic as a Clinical Social Worker. Mutabi holds a bachelor’s degree in Social Work from the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Zambia. In 2018, she founded Bwami Zambia, a youth-led nonprofit that fights against child marriage, poor menstrual hygiene, and harmful traditional practices. In 2019, Mutabi went on to become a Global Changemaker and was awarded Global Changemaker Zambia 2019. She is also a Social Innovation Warehouse Alumni, PEPETA Africa panelist, and mentor under Global Changemakers. Mutabi is a passionate social worker, feminist, and activist.
Fun fact: Growing up, Mutabi’s dream job was to be an Olympic Gold medalist in track and field and a Forensic Detective. While she isn’t any of these things “yet”, her energy and passions have spilled over into fighting for change, creating platforms for self-actualization, and advocating for others.
