Hildegren Kimbunga – Tanzania

Area Director

Hildegren Kimbunga was one of the first Young Life volunteer leaders in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania when she came on board in 2004. She was introduced to Young Life by Deo Kyara, whom she met at a church revival. The two were both passionate for the Lord as well as the youth of Dar es Salaam, so a 12+ year partnership in ministry was born. She serves as the area director in Dar es Salaam, leading clubs in TemboniJltegemee High School and the Ubungo neighborhood, and brings wisdom, joy and passion to the team. As an older female figure within the organization in Tanzania, she acts as a faithful mentor to many Young Life staff members and volunteers throughout the country. 

Hildegren, an extremely talented seamstress, is also a local artisan for the Karama Collection – a fair-trade business that nurtures artisan relationships in Africa, champions small business development, provides access to a global marketplace, and invests in African teenagers through Young Life Africa camp sponsorships. She makes beautiful napkins and placemats along with leading Young Life!
