“I have headed several programs engaging political and civic leaders with citizens on effective service delivery in the Environment, Education, Health, and Marketing and production sectors in Uganda. In 2011, i led a team of over 800 youth in Uganda to monitor elections as well as sensitizing their fellow youth on voting leaders that could respond to the current global challenges like climate change and corruption.

In 2007, I was a project officer, Campaign against Sexual Violence on Children and in 2008, I headed a project on climate change in Uganda at Good Hope Foundation for Rural Development in Western Uganda that addressed environmental challenges. Since 2009, I have been a program officer for the enhancing civic competence program at Rwenzori Consortium for Civic Competence (RWECO) in Uganda that engages citizens and their leaders on development issues including environmental issues.

I am the National Advisor, IDEASForUganda that works in the whole country with the youth on environmental sustainability since early 2012. I also serve as an assistant head of laity in my local church.

I love making friends as well as meeting new people, travelling, reading, interacting with down to earth, development and open minded people. I also like transparency, timely feedback and respect for each other.”
