Christopher Ategeka is the founder and CEO of Rides for Lives. Motivated by his own experiences of growing up in rural Uganda as an orphan, Rides for Lives was launched in 2011 to manufacture and develop the local community through social innovation and greater job opportunities. It connects individuals and communities in East African to critical health and economic opportunities by building and coordinating the distribution of locally made transport vehicles. After losing his parents at age seven and becoming the head of the family, he started his first company in order to support his four younger siblings – a neighborhood trash collection service. He is also a PhD student at UC Berkeley.
