Alex Hughes-Smith

Communications & Executive Manager

Alex joined Mulago in 2017 and manages our communications.

He has managed the hustle and bustle of Manhattan restaurants and navigated the everyday challenges of a primary school teacher in rural Gambia, where he was a Peace Corps volunteer. After teaching in schools in the UK, US, India, and Palestine, and a sidestep into fashion photography, and running marketing and events at a yoga commune, he completed his MA at UC Berkeley and University College London with a focus on impact evaluation of education programs.

He's built up Mulago's comms over the past five years and has worked with dozens of our fellows to hone their ability to communicate what they do in a clear, simple way that makes an audience care. When he’s not doing that, he can be found with his head stuck in a good book or playing football (it’s football, not soccer, never soccer).
