About the podcast

The Narratives of Purpose podcast showcases unique stories of people who are contributing to make a difference in society, with a great impact in their communities and globally. These are stories of changemakers, trailblazers or even role models. Our guests reveal their successes, lessons learned but also their perspectives on the future.

You will find a collection of songs selected by our guests from season one on a Spotify playlist. Songs that accompanied them throughout their journeys and songs they simply love to listen to.


Our show has been shortlisted at the 2021 International Women's Podcast Awards for two awards: the Moment of Behind-The-Scenes Brilliance and the Moment of Entrepreneurial Inspiration.


The podcast founder and host, Claire Murigande, is a biologist by training. She is passionate about amplifying social impact. Claire was a featured speaker at the first TEDx HWZ edition, in 2020. Her inspiring talk titled "Self-connectedness" highlighted the power of focusing one's attention inward, questioning one's thoughts and being attentive to one's emotions.
