Hannah Adoyo Moturi


I am passionate about creating systems that ensure growth, impact and inclusion. I have dedicated my time to work and volunteer in Youth work, Mentorship, Policy, Advocacy, Gender and Development in national, regional and international organizations and represented youth in policy spaces in Africa across the globe.

I am a commonwealth scholar currently pursuing an Master of Science in International Development (Distance Learning) at the University of Birmingham. I hold a bachelors degree in Psychology and a minor in International Relations from USIU-Africa, Class of 2012.

I worked as the Regional Director at World Youth Alliance Africa (2013 -2016) and I am currently serving in the Steering Committee under the World Youth Alliance Africa Board since 2017. I previously worked in different capacities at the World Youth Alliance Africa office and at the International Headquarters in New York. In the Africa Regional office, my work involved empowering young people, advocacy and policy, education and training and membership and community outreach. Internationally, my work involved advocacy and policy work at the United Nations Headquarters, New York, in the Economic and Social Council.

In 2012, I worked at The African Women’s Development and Communication Network - FEMNET where my key achievements were my published articles, on women’s empowerment and mobilizing and amplifying the voices of African women through social media.

I look forward to serving the USIU-Africa Alumni over the next two years.
