Emmanuel Kivanyuma Waiswa

Civil Collective, Uganda

Emmanuel is a farmer and a grassroots enthusiast with a passion for community-led development.

β€œAt Civil Collective, we have a belief that poor people should be given the space and resources to self-determine and develop local capacities to overcome inequalities, of which the lack of money is just one part. I hope that the next six months of the fellowship can bring us all together, to share experiences, as well as attempt to formulate an agenda on how we can confront large mainstream ineffective aid systems at home and globally.”
