Gloria Namugaya was born and raised in Jinja, Uganda, a small town best known for where the River Nile starts (Source of River Nile) in East Africa. She came to the U.S. as a grad student and, since then, decided to live in Massachusetts. She has a bachelor’s degree in Law from Makerere University and a master’s degree in International Sustainable Development from the Heller School of Social Policy and Management, Brandeis University.
She has over seven years of experience working and serving the nonprofit sector as a volunteer, fundraiser, organizer, activist, and director in the New England area.
Gloria is a firm believer in education equity and helping others – “I do find my deepest joys in helping others and the gifts of family.” She is passionate about social justice and always looking for creative strategies to match capital with opportunity in historically underserved communities.
In her free time, you will get her spending time with her husband and two toddlers, watching soccer, on a safari trip, traveling, visiting farmers markets with her toddlers, trying out new food recipes, or reading a memoir.
