Justin Zoradi

Justin has transitioned out of leadership at These Numbers Have Faces. He is now the President of GivingFuel.


Justin Zoradi is the founder of These Numbers Have Faces, a social enterprise investing in the next generation of African leaders. In 2008, from the couch of his apartment, Justin scraped together a few thousand dollars to help one friend from South Africa to attend university. What started small now provides higher education loans, leadership training, and entrepreneurship investments to thousands of young people throughout sub-Saharan Africa.


After ten years of running the organization, Justin successfully transitioned and is now the President of GivingFuel, an innovative fundraising platform empowering thousands of organizations worldwide. Justin is the author of two books, Made For These Times and Doing Work That Matters. He holds a BA in communication studies from Westmont College and an MA in international conflict resolution from Portland State University.


An obsessive soccer fan and weekend landscaper, Justin lives in Portland, Oregon, with his lovely wife Trisha and daughter Josephine.

These Numbers Have Faces works with college students in Rwanda, Uganda, South Africa, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Through education, leadership, entrepreneurship, and women's empowerment, they invest in Africa's brightest students to lead and empower their countries.
