Theodosie Mugwaneza is an Expert in Globalization and international Development, with a specific orientation and interest on Global Health and Education issues around the word, especially in Low and Middle Incomes Countries.
Theodosie Mugwaneza is a founding member of Rwanda Palliative Care and Hospice Organization (RPCHO) a non-profit organization dedicated to advocate and support people suffering from life-threatening illnesses. The organization promotes access to high-quality palliative care for all people living in Rwanda through home-based care. Mrs Mugwaneza is also the former Executive Secretary of RPCHO.
In 2013, she worked as a Program Manager of Capacitar Rwanda, a local non-profit organization which is using a popular education approach to giving people affected by violence, trauma and poverty the tools to heal themselves, their families and their communities.
Mrs. Mugwaneza is a Yoga Instructor and devotedly practices yoga in her everyday life. This way of living awakens true sense of self, improves concentration, allows body stretching through exercises and the control of the mind and body.
Her goal is to use her experience in palliative care to foster the mental and physical rehabilitation of terminally ill patients and their caregivers, who at times are more impacted by the weight of the illness. The yoga practice facilitates this goal and allows the beneficiaries to find comfort by learning key elements of their pain management.
