About the Millennium Fellow
Basikania Amonison is a young vibrant man currently doing a bachelor's degree in engineering from ndejje University. He was born and raised in the hills of maliba subcounty, kasese district. In this society he was raised in, there were many social problems of poverty, illiteracy,organism etc so he grew up with the desire to bring that change in his society. He has already gone a step in filling that dream as he started a small association in his village of organising the youth to become better through engaging them in hands in projects. These include brickmaking, fish farming, animal husbandry etc which is starting to perform well. Now with the Millennium Fellowship, he hopes to join hands with other vibrant brains from his campus to bring that positive impact in their society
