HROC Staff

Hirwa-newHirwa Jean Hubert, HROC Center co-director, was born in Rwanda, though at an early age moved to the Democratic Republic of Congo with his family. Back in Rwanda, he studied Biology and Chemistry in High School. He was inspired by his late step-mother who used to work with her community, so went on to college to study Development Studies. After earning his bachelor’s in 2011, Hirwa volunteered with World Relief International in Kenya in the Monitoring and Evaluation department and worked as an assistant Project Manager with Initiative des Amis Combattant le SIDA in 2012. Hirwa now serves as HROC Center co-director and as a facilitator for HROC workshops.
