" I am eager to team up on projects in collaboration with colleagues. Being blessed with the high degree of flexibility and adaptability to new environments, I am also interested in seeing how this Fellowship will enable me continue placing Focus on the African Child in partnership with other like-minded people and organisations.
The work I love doing involves charity but most importantly, shining a bright light on the plight of children who lack basic needs like clothing and food as well as showing affection to those that have never been loved or were abandoned. "

About the Millennium Fellow
Ivon Ainemigisha is a friendly, personable and results oriented individual and soon-to-be graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Law. Having been born and raised in Kampala which is the capital city of Uganda, Ivon has not had the chance to travel the world as yet and hopes that this experience will provide a semblance of the international exposure she so desires as well as open doors for her to pursue her dreams of helping people on a more global scale.
More recently, she became dedicated to figuring out her unique purpose by finding the intersection of what she enjoys doing and what is actually beneficial. It came as no surprise therefore, that from the time she was in high school, she found that she enjoyed volunteering in the local Sunday school, or even in law clinics while at Law School that provide pro bono services to the indigent members of the community around.
So armed with great communication skills, such as listening, empathizing and problem-solving, she intends to help by serving people anywhere that she can and in any way within her means, so that someone's life is made easier.
