Myskinglobal is co-led by Francoise Mbabazi and Yehoyada, both of Rwandan origin. Francoise was born and raised in Uganda, and she is a passionate human rights activist and community engagement leader with over 10 years of diverse work experience in nonprofits strengthening strong and sustainable partnerships, leadership development, power building, and shifting the inequities that exist in low-income and the disfranchised communities.
She grew up around people who felt inadequate and less beautiful because of their skin color. A culture where this practice was the norm. Frustrated by this tradition, she went out to research further. In trying to understand why, the dangers of this global $20+B pandemic targeting Black and Brown people spurred the formation of MySkinglobal, an organization dedicated to changing the conversation about skin color biases.
To disrupt the practice of skin bleaching and see every child have confidence and self-admiration in the skin they are in!
To become #1 in advocacy on skin health and decrease the amount of black and brown youth engaging in skin bleaching through educational strategies.
