Mwene Vunongue

Cultures of Resistance Awardee – Angola
Mwene Vunongue is an Angolan teacher and civic activist. Mwene is dedicated to fighting for human rights in Mukanka — his neighborhood located in the city of Lubango. Despite the lack of basic social services, Mwene’s relentless advocacy has made electricity accessible for Mukanka residents. In addition, after publishing a book titled “Os Meus Tios e os Seus Antongoko,” Mwene used the proceeds to create a water well serving dozens of families in Mukanka. 
Mwene received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) in 2023. He used the award to fund a film projector to host film events in the community.
