Title & Organization: Advocacy and Programmes Manager, Bulawayo Progressive Residents Association

Emmanuel Ndlovu is a public policy advocate with more than five years of experience working with marginalized and underrepresented communities. Emmanuel is presently the Advocacy and Programmes Manager for Bulawayo Progressive Residents Association, a community based social movement operating in Zimbabwe’s second capital. Emmanuel works with grassroots communities distant from centers of power who have diminished impact in determining the direction of the country. He has been able to formulate community driven problem solving interventions, assisting communities to deal with problems of service delivery and irresponsive local governance. Through his participation in the Washington Fellows, Emmanuel hopes to gain more experience in organizational thinking and participatory forms of evidence-based local level advocacy. Emmanuel holds a master’s degree in Development Studies from the National University of Science and Technology in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, where he examined the causal relationship between domestic and international trade policies and the deindustrialization of Bulawayo.
