Sandrine “Dudu” Uwiduhaye

Head Coach

ORGANISATION: Shooting Touch

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.


The speakers

Using the unique power of sport to bring people together, the Olympism in Action Forum will see a range of global players, including Olympic Movement stakeholders, athletes, private and public sector leaders, NGO representatives, academics, artists and the media come together to talk on topical contemporary issues. Chosen because of their ability to effect change and their wide range of sometimes differing opinions, the speakers will lead lively debates and seek to challenge received wisdom to inspire new ways of thinking.
