Makerere University | Kampala, Uganda | Advancing SDG 7 & UNAI 9
" I want to be a Millennium Fellow because I am passionate about service and leadership. As a University student and soon to be graduate, I have the opportunity and duty to use my knowledge and skills to solve the challenges in my society. The Millennium Fellowship will offer me a space to learn how to advocate for change in line with the Sustainable Development Goals. The Millennium Fellowship will enable me to contribute to and learn from a network of motivated young change makers globally and on my campus. This fellowship will give me the platform to hone my leadership skills and will also be a springboard for my advocacy for proper waste management in my university and community. My passion for the environment stems from having developed awareness of threats to the biosphere early on life. Having lived in Uganda my whole life and particularly Makerere-Kikoni a Kampala suburb for my university, I have seen first hand the consequences of pollution of the environment and how they affect our daily lives. This fellowship will give me an opportunity to promote environment welfare ,while creating income for people in the community through the utilization of an available resource such as waste. "
