Who We Are

Evelyn Omala

Africa Portfolio Manager, Partners for Equity Board Member, Previous Board Chair and Founding Working Group Member
People directly affected by the problem are often the best authors of lasting solutions to their own problems. They often have the best understanding of the local context, are deeply woven into the social fabric, and know how to navigate the complexities in their communities. There’s evidence to suggest that local solutions are more sustainable, impactful and are often more cost-effective than imported solutions.”

Eve has spent the last 10 years working in philanthropy and championing social change across 3 continents. After an exciting and highly rewarding time as the Director of Operations at Segal Family Foundation, where she oversaw the foundation’s grantmaking activities to over 200 grantee partners across Sub-Saharan Africa, Eve embarked on a new journey as an independent philanthropic consultant. She currently advises and supports philanthropic organizations on their Africa grantmaking strategies. Through this work, she oversees Partners for Equity’s Africa grassroots portfolio as well as managing Segal Family Foundation’s impact investing portfolio. Prior to joining the philanthropic sector, Eve worked as the M&E Manager at Reach Out Mbuya HIV/AIDS Initiative Uganda and was also a Global Health Corps Fellow in Washington D.C where she worked as an HIV Prevention Programs Assistant at HIPS. She also worked as a Systems Analyst at Warid Telecom for 3 years. In addition to her professional roles, Eve serves on the boards of Segal Family Foundation and Fundi Bots. She has an MBA from Griffith University and a Bsc in Information Technology from Makerere University.
