Evaline Mamboleo

Tanzania & University of Johannesburg, 2024

Evaline holds a Bachelor's degree (Honours) in International Business and Trade from the African Leadership University (ALU) as a Mastercard Foundation Scholar. She is a dedicated advocate for gender equality and women's empowerment. Her commitment to advancing gender equality and women's empowerment inspired her to establish the "Msichana Wetu Campaign", an innovative platform that equips over 500 women with vocational skills to be self-sufficient. This initiative earned recognition by Africaid as the Young Tanzanian Best Community Project in 2018. Furthermore, in her pursuit of women's empowerment, Evaline founded "My Homestead," a non-profit initiative offering agricultural economic opportunities to women and girls from low-income backgrounds in Tanzania, securing seed funding grants from the Jim Leech Fellowship.

Her contributions extend to organizations such as SIDO, a parastatal of the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Investment in Tanzania, where she actively engaged in providing entrepreneurial training to small-scale entrepreneurs. Additionally, Evaline served as a youth representative in the Arusha Regional discussion forum, concentrating on shaping 2050 sustainable development goals in economic development, environmental sustainability, and social equity.

Evaline is also a dedicated advocate for environmental conservation. Sponsored by the ALU School of Wildlife Conservation she worked in raising awareness on conservation of endangered species at Colobus Conservation Kenya. Evaline has been recognized as a Jim Leech Mastercard Foundation Fellow and a Women Techsters Fellow. She is a finalist for the Mastercard Scholars Entrepreneurship Fund. Evaline was selected as a delegate for the African Women Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum dedicated to closing the gender gap in consultation with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. Looking forward, Evaline's aspirations remain centred on fostering economic development for women and girls, ultimately contributing to a more equitable society and championing transformative change.
