As our ministry grows and expands across the nations, we continue to build LIA’s capacity by adding key staff to our team. We would like to announce the addition of two integral members to the LIA family:
Victor Mikebanyi Ruhimbya, our new Director or Programs (left) is based at our headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. He will oversee the implementation of LIA’s initiatives. Read more about Victor’s role with LIA on our leadership page.
