Oscar Ogwang

Oscar has a passion for pioneering and helping to develop social impact ventures. He joined Naomi’s Village in January 2014 as the Director of Administration. He currently serves as Director of Ministry Development at Cornerstone Preparatory Academy. From 2004 – 2012, Oscar was the Director of Administration at Bethany Kids, a medical ministry specializing in paediatric rehabilitative and corrective surgery, based in Kijabe Hospital. Convinced of the potential and of the need to develop a local resource mobilization component for this ministry, Oscar served as Bethany Kids Kenya’s Director of Resource Mobilization in 2012- 2013. While at Bethany Kids, he was also instrumental in the growth and development of the Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association of Kenya (SHAK), a nationwide support group network for parents of children with spina bifida and hydrocephalus and their kids, for which he still serves as an advisory board member. He was also a co-founder and director of the Philemon Trust Prison Ministry from 2002 – 2004; an intern in the Worship and Missions Department at the Nairobi Chapel in 2001; a marketing research assistant for East Africa Industries (now Unilever Kenya); and an assistant quantity surveyor for Costek Quantity Surveyors. Oscar is a qualified building economist (quantity surveyor). He received his Bachelor’s Degree in building economics and management from the University of Nairobi and is finalizing his Master of Business Administration in strategic planning from Kenya Methodist University (KEMU). His skills and training as a building economist have proved very useful in several major construction projects undertaken both by Bethany Kids and Naomi’s Village.

Oscar spends his spare time on various worship projects as a singer and guitarist. He also loves reading books and writing songs and poetry.

Oscar’s wife, Josephine, works for a disability rights organization based in Nairobi.
