Former Miss Popularity Uganda Aisha Nabukeera is among 12 young personalities selected as beneficiaries of this year’s Generation Africa programme funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The Generation Africa programme aims at helping African youth whose personal experiences have shaped their determination to help others across the continent by telling their stories globally.
The 12 winners will be trained through a tailored communications and media programme, developed by experts at Thomson Reuters.
It is said the aim is to transform them into global development champions by honing their story-telling skills so as to inspire change on a universal platform.
Nabukeera took to her social media to announce her new mile stone.
“I write on a light note to share with you good news; I was chosen among the 12 people in Africa to be on the Generation Africa cohort.
This was a stiff competition where all people on the African continent with inspiring stories which can change and inspire the world participated [in] and indeed I emerged among the lucky 12 people thanks to the Almighty God,” She wrote.
