Executive Director

Faruku Kibaba Maate

Faruku Kibaba grew up in Uganda, in Kasese district a community where aggression, tribalism, corruption, and social-economic injustices are part of his daily routines. He witnessed different acts of violence, child abuse, injustices against women, and including inter tribble conflict. These experiences of hostility and injustice in his community led him to work with various initiatives to avert the crisis that has spanned for decades.

This situation has affected youth since they are always at the frontline of all conflicts since they are easily manipulated due to the high unemployment levels. The Rotaract and Rotary Clubs of Kasese provided me an opportunity of being part of an international diplomatic path to solving local and national level conflicts and realization of peace and stability in my country Uganda. Faruku Kibaba participated in Pillars of Peace training and mentorship workshops in Uganda by the Institute of Economics and Peace and International Peace and Security Institute where he acquired skills in peacebuilding, mediation, and reconciliation.

His long service in Rotary from Kasese Uganda has exposed him to different avenues of promoting international understanding and goodwill. Professionally, Faruku holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics majoring in Economic Policy Planning from Makerere University. He also has a Postgraduate diploma n Project Planning and Managementcoupled with an experimental background in Conflict areas and resettlement procedures from his home communities.
