Njamba Koffi

Njamba’s journey to becoming a social entrepreneur began during his time at the University of British Columbia (UBC). While at UBC, he held several extracurricular leadership roles and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Affairs. He is currently pursuing a Master’s degree at UBC’s Sauder School of Business.

Njamba is now at the Vancouver Foundation in his new role as a Manager of Research and Design. Prior to this, he worked for the Vancouver Foundation as a Grants and Community Initiative Manager, where he managed charitable initiatives supporting minority and less recognized communities in Canada.

Njamba is also a writer and has produced a manuscript for the first book in a trilogy entitled “In My Heart.” As a published author and current university student in Canada who has lived in two refugee camps, Njamba soon realized that empowerment through education is of utmost importance for his own future as well as his family’s and community’s future – education means hope. Therefore, he contributes his time as an Advisor to Amala Education, ensuring that learning is informed by the lived experiences of those it serves.
