From 2011-2013, i have been serving as the vice president Makerere University St. Augustine-Michellex Community, i community i served with commitment and as such i was recognized as an outstanding leader. I enjoy working with and serving people. But more still i have a passion for community work because you get to see different people, with different ways of life and how people be able to cope with life despite the limited resources. It is so inspiring and challenging. And on that note i have experience with various upcountry villages in Uganda which i acquired through project implementations, adventures, et.c.

Challenge Entries

Uganda's conservative culture limits adolescents access to reproductive health information; as a result they rely on misguiding information from their peers and end up falling victims of circumstances. This raises need for a peer oriented education program to equip them with reliable information.
