2021 Goldin Global Fellow

Luc Mukamba is a 21-year old Congolese based in Kinshasa, DRC, where he is completing his University studies. When he was a child he was fascinated with fixing devices and learning about electrical mechanics, and would fix devices and machines with his father. This led to him pursue his studies in General Electronics at college. Using what he had learnt he mobilized his classmates and together they offered training to young people on household electricity installations. He is passionate about mobilizing educated and trained individuals, such as his classmates, to come together to start programs to empower and train youth who have no access to education, by providing them with technical skills which they can use as a means of earning income.
