Its the last week of September, and my, how the last 3 months have changed!
In the last 3 months, alot has changed, and for the next quarter, lets see what am working on, what am dreaming about and what life should bring.
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.
As Alumni Country President, I support the goals of GHC’s alumni program, which are:
- To continue supporting alumni in their leadership development and involvement in the global health equity movement
- To foster connections within fellowship classes and between classes
- To maintain a strong connection between GHC and alumni.
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 – Finally, I am back at work. At the Watoto Ministries Kampala Office, heading the IT Department. This is a very interesting and exciting position, for what it has already indicated to me, I will definitely grow. With over 1200 staff, a mixed mode OS environment, Watoto has a Church, a Child Care Organisation, a Radio Station, and a Business entity. My role is to harness ICT for the mission and vision of this organisation.
