WHY IT IS NEEDEDThe pandemic presented new challenges to people worldwide. It challenged and shook everything we held dear such as human interactions, gatherings and bonding activities. As a result, changemakers felt anxious, worried and craved a breathing space to reconnect with one another.
We organised a 3-day camp that brought together 20 alumni in Jinja at Nile Nest Resort under the Bosch Alumni Network in East Africa. The event was steeped in the tradition of fireplace conversation where changemakers shared stories, had meaningful conversations about pressing issues such as climate change, agribusiness, mental health among others. The project was funded by iac Berlin
Groundbreaking ideas come during informal settings and unconventional places.
