Sandrine “Dudu” UwiduhayeHead Coach
Sandrine “Dudu” Uwiduhaye is a mentor and coach with Shooting Touch, an international NGO that works to empower at-risk youth through basketball. Uwiduhaye joined Shooting Touch in 2017 as a confident and powerful female educator and curriculum director, who teaches valuable lessons and interventions on disease prevention and health promotion every day.
Born and raised in Kigali, Rwanda, Uwiduhaye attended Fawe Girls High School and graduated from Akilah Institute for Women, two schools that focus on educating and empowering young women in order to become leaders within their communities.
As a team captain and sports minister in high school, and as sports president in college in charge of coordinating all games, Uwiduhaye learned valuable leadership skills that she passes on to Shooting Touch youth.
Her personal life goals align with Shooting Touch’s primary mission in Rwanda: to put young people and women on track towards a brighter future by transferring the values and skills learned on the basketball court to their everyday lives and communities.
Together with basketball, Uwiduhaye works with coaches and partners to improve health, citizenry and employability, and is honoured to be teaching these values and making a difference in this world.
