Associate Archbishop Desmond Tutu Fellow
Occupational Position: Founder/ Director-Marketing & Digital Media
I have not undertaken a project in conjunction with AFLI. I have instead undertaken projects inspired by AFLI, such as the African School of Entrepreneurship & Social Transformation (ASSET). This project is at ground-breaking level and 40 acres of land have been acquired. I will aim at fundamentally skilling the youths of Uganda with practical skills to enable them to find jobs quickly or create their own jobs. It will teach them job skills, leadership and life skills and a Diploma after 18 months.
I Started a career in journalism in 1999 as a Stringer for Daily Monitor, www.monitor.co.ug in Uganda.
