GILES SYMPOSIUM: DERRECK KAYONGO

An expert in environmental sustainability and global health, Kayongo founded the Global Soap Project as an international aid organization that collects discarded soap from hotels, reprocesses and distributes it to vulnerable populations. Known for his optimistic energy, he was named a CNN Hero in 2011. Kayongo was chosen to be the new CEO for the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in downtown Atlanta in 2015.  Born in Uganda in 1970, Kayongo later immigrated to the United States and graduated from the prestigious Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
