It is November! Yay. 61 Days to Fifi’s Birthday, 55 to Christmas, 39 to my birthday, and most crucially 10 days to the 90 day mark since I started working with the Watoto Ministries. How time flies.
GHC – You are welcome to catch up with my experiences in the Health Sector, largely influenced by the Global Health Corp and Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. I am now the Alumni Country President of the GHC Uganda Chapter.
GHC alumni are critical to the mission of mobilizing a community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. Given GHC’s growth trajectory, there are now more alumni than fellows, providing an amazing opportunity for us to harness our collective experience and determine how we can best work towards improving the health of those most in need, both in our own countries and beyond.
FOSSFA – You can read about my experiences in the use, promotion and advocacy for Free and Open Source Software, in Uganda, and indeed in Africa. We have started the process to elect a new council for FOSSFA.
The work of FOSSFA remains dear to me, and I will continue to remain active in my support of the mission of the foundation.
WATOTO Ministries – They say the American president has 100 days to show that he is the right candidate for the job. Time to put in some high impact results, to convince the team you have captured their heartbeat, and to rise up to make instant impact. I am not the american president, so i don’t get 100. I get 90.
My lessons while working with EGPAF have never been more important. I am in awe of the value of systems and the high premium associated with Monitoring and Evaluation.
LEADERSHIP - I feel very strongly that I am on a learning path to hone my leadership skills. This month I will continue to read John Maxwell, participate in board meetings. I am at the helm of a continent wide organisation and I cant believe how unskilled and unschooled I was when i first accepted to be the leader. Perhaps I am rediscovering myself and I am eternally honored to have people who believe in my leadership skills.
The only way I could reward that faith is to go back to school and intentionally become better.
As always, I place my thoughts on the Blog page, you are welcome to read along.
