Travis L Rudd

Travis L. Rudd

Founder & President

Stanley | North Carolina

Kibera (Nairobi, Kenya) has been regarded as the largest informal settlement (e.g., slum) in Africa. This reality moved Travis into action in 2017 during his first visit to Kibera. Combined with his passion for helping others and doing things the right way; this ultimately initiated the start of We One Action Network (WOAN).

However, he quickly realized there were cultural differences that made achieving goals a challenge within the framework of the Kenyan and American cultures. This led Travis to build strong alliances with grassroot organizations to help fill a void with inequalities in all aspects of educating vulnerable youth.

Travis has a degree in Industrial Systems Technology and a certification in Organizational Leadership from Belmont Abbey College. His current position is in Business Process Management with Duke Energy Corporation.

We One Action Network is committed to helping vulnerable and disadvantaged students and educators in Kenya.
