On 11 July 2010, Hassan Ndugwa was watching the FIFA World Cup final at the Kyadondo Rugby Club in Uganda.
Hassan survived the attack, which claimed 74 lives and injured 75 people. Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen, more commonly known as Al-Shabaab, claimed responsibility for the attacks, which also included an attack against a restaurant in Kampala.
Hassan Ndugwa, together with his friend Ahmed Hadji, co-founded the Uganda Muslim Youth Development Forum (UMYDF) in 2011.
Hassan is actively involved in initiatives to fight violent extremism and radicalization, working to provide positive alternatives to youths at risk of recruitment in Uganda and to amplify victims voices.
Hassan is among the 10 global advocates selected by the Kofi Annan Foundation and One Young World to counter violent extremism across the globe.
