James Kahwagi

Sub Grant Coordinator, Beirut

I am passionate about humanitarianism and reaching the most vulnerable with ways that will sustainably improve the lives of those who need it.

James Kahwagi is a Sub Grants Coordinator at the Hague Institute for Innovation of Law (HiiL) and is part of the team in Beirut, Lebanon. Having joined HiiL in December 2020, James supports subgrantees in planning their projects, monitors the progress as subgrantees strive to meet outcome goals and then supports in evaluating the project.

James supported a handful of victims of the Beirut blast by leading a team of volunteers that helped replace kitchen appliances that were damaged beyond use in the areas that were most affected.

When he’s not being locked indoors, James loves going to his local Crossfit box and playing tennis.
