“Since I was young, I am interested in other cultures and how people live, react, and move around. By joining Iganga, it is possible to get in touch with different people from around the world and help them with mobility related questions. In this way I can combine my interest in mobility and other cultures.”
Treasurer of Iganga since 2020
”As an active cyclist, I fully support the objectives of Iganga. How great is it to make cities safer, more accessible and more liveable? Making cities more liveable and greener with plenty of space for bicycles and pedestrians has positive effects on health and well-being and can also be implemented in a cost-effective way. As a board member of Iganga, I hope to make a modest contribution to achieving these objectives.”
Board member of Iganga since 2018
”I have always been fascinated by the complexity of cities worldwide. The people, culture and public spaces make each city unique. I’m curious to learn how your city works and what makes it so special for you. That why I have joined Iganga, to talk to people worldwide. Here in The Netherlands, we’re famous for our bike culture. Let’s have a chat about our cities!”

”Coming from a developing country myself, the mission of Iganga touches me immensely. I am a firm believer that mobility can help transform our countries, and the need to transform my own country in this matter led me to choose this as my career path. Now, being part of Iganga, I feel that I can somehow have some a positive impact in many countries around the world.”
Board member of Iganga since 2023
”Having lived in Ghana and Ethiopia for eight years during my childhood, I have a strong passion for creating mobility solutions in diverse countries with various climates, and transportation patterns. It’s not about simply implementing ‘the Dutch way’, but rather about collaborating with local communities to find solutions that fit the specific environment. This is what I hope to do within Iganga.”
