Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2004
    This description of Irene Mutumba's work was prepared when Irene Mutumba was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2004.
    Irene is challenging the traditional educational system in Uganda by creating a new learning environment where young people are encouraged to think and act like entrepreneurs. Through her youth-led and community supported clubs, Ugandan youth get the opportunities to be creative, demonstrate initiative, and approach learning in new ways.
