We are at a time where it is pivotal for us to recognize the power that the built environment has on producing health outcomes.

Arlette Akingeneye

Manager, Advancement and Communications
Kigali, Rwanda

Arlette joined the team in June of 2018 and operates as a hybrid between our communications and business development teams. Here at MASS, she supports the team through top-notch coordination of the sourcing and tracking of potential opportunities. She also contributes to the production of marketing and press materials.

Born and raised in Kigali, she journeyed to Canada in 2014 to pursue her undergraduate degree at Quest University Canada. There she received her Bachelor of Arts and Science focusing on health policy. During her studies, she worked as a Marketing and Development Assistant for the university, documenting International students’ experiences. Arlette worked collaboratively with her team to develop a fundraising campaign plan to raise money intended to contribute to 20 full scholarships for students with diverse backgrounds. She’s also been a Program Assistant at the Clinton Health Access Initiative in Rwanda, where managed the logistics for the training of district project managers and completed different administrative tasks, such as facilitating communication and meeting with visitors.

Arlette is passionate about improving people’s lives by working on projects that impact vulnerable populations, particularly those affecting children, women, and the impoverished. In the future, she hopes to pursue a Master’s degree in Global Health so that she can continue to work to find innovative solutions to public health challenges presented in developing countries.
