Ana Lê Rocha

Executive Director with Nipe Fagio in Tanzania


Ana is Brazilian and has a master’s in business with a focus on Business Strategy for Sustainability and Marketing by FGV-SP. She has been permanently living in Tanzania since July 2010. She is the Executive Director for Nipe Fagio. Ana has over 15 years’ experience in community engagement and has lived for 7 years in rural Tanzania catalyzing income security for local communities through social entrepreneurship programs.

Ana believes that COVID-19 has made it mandatory for us to recognize the inequality of the world that we live in and rethink ourselves as a society, ensuring that we use solidarity to balance historical gaps and that we provide vulnerable groups with meaningful opportunities. And that we ensure that social justice walks together with environmental stewardship.
