I am the Co-Founder and Executive Director of African Youth Development Link (AYDL), where I provide strategic leadership and oversight on almost all aspects of the organization’s operations. I am a strong advocate for youth empowerment and development with keen interest in sexual and reproductive health, human rights, livelihood, gender equality and youth participation.

My work advocating for youth rights and social justice in Uganda was born out of my natural leadership and concern for his fellow Ugandans. Growing up in the countryside, I witnessed, firsthand, the challenges and inequities rural Ugandans faced. Inspired by these circumstances, I co-founded AYDL, to ensure every youth in Uganda had the power to address the problems their community faced.

My policy analysis and advocacy skills have been horned and strengthen in such spaces as the Young 4 Policy Programme; the prestigious Women Deliver Young Leaders Fellowship; the Family Planning Budget Advocacy Group (FP BAG) in Uganda; as well as the Youth Coalition on Electoral Democracy in Uganda (YCED), whose secretariat I host and coordinate.
