With a diverse background in engineering and finance, Henry has assembled a dedicated team of experts, united in their pursuit of comprehending and tackling complex societal challenges on a grand scale. Despite spending the past two decades studying and working in Europe, their unwavering connection to Africa, their birthplace and the home of their families, continues to shape their collective vision and purpose.
Having personally witnessed the hardships inflicted by energy poverty during their upbringing in Africa, their determination to dedicate their professional lives to effecting positive change in these areas burns brighter than ever. Valhko embraces the transformative power of digital innovations, recognizing them as game-changing opportunities for Africa's development.
