Judith Mukakayange

Community Engagement Coordinator African

“When you change the way of thinking, what is around you will transform accordingly.”

I am from Rwanda and I came in NZ in 1998, just four years after the Rwanda genocide. 

It is my honour to join a team with people who are as passionate and committed as I am to communities' response to HIV. It has never been easy to work for HIV prevention because of the stigma around it. But once I was able to change my way of thinking, I was able to start trying to change others around me.

I continue to work part-time for Positive Women Inc as a communities educator and health promoter.
