We’re a remote-first team from all over the world!
Meet Taha and Omar Bawa, the brothers behind Goodwall. They started Goodwall to inspire and encourage the next generation to achieve more and impact society positively.
Born into a humanitarian family with parents serving the United Nations, as kids, they visited refugee camps meeting children of a similar age. The disparity in their opportunities left a lasting impression, inspiring the DNA of Goodwall - to level the playing field for youth everywhere.
Since founding Goodwall, they have helped 2 million+ young people, 60% female, in more than 150 countries navigate their learning and earning journeys.
Taha leads Goodwall's strategy and team. He is on the Global Leadership Council of Generation Unlimited, a leading public-private-youth partnership linking young people to opportunities. A Forbes 30under30, WEF Tech Pioneer and Global Shaper, he has spoken about skills development, connecting youth to opportunity, technology for impact, and climate justice in places such as TEDx, UN, WEF, Google, Forbes, and CNN. Taha studied Economics at the University of Lausanne and has an MBA from the University of Oxford.
Omar leads Goodwall’s operations, growth, and product strategy. He serves on the Global Council of JA Worldwide, an NGO serving 10m+ youth nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize. He has been selected as a WEF Techn Pioneer, listed on Forbes 30under30, served on the Editorial Board of the United Nations Magazine, and is a Sigma Squared Fellow. Omar has spoken at TEDx, Pioneers, Google, and the United Nations and has a degree in Law from the University of Geneva.
