Grant Winning Young Recycling Entrepreneur in Uganda

Cleofash Alinaitwe
At Grow Movement we are always immensely proud of all of our clients for the achievements that they make on the programme. Grow is even more thrilled when our clients, with the help of their consultants, obtain essential funding to progress their ideas.

Cleofash Alinaitwe, a young entrepreneur from Kampala Uganda has just been awarded a grant from the Pollination Project. The Pollination Project seeks to unleash goodness and expand compassion all over the world by funding social change-makers who are committed to a world that works for all.

Through a global network of grantees and community partners, they identify extraordinary grassroots leaders who would not likely qualify for funding from other foundations or institutions.

Cleofash runs a a youth-led non-governmental organization called the Art Planet Academy. One of his projects is to run student recycling awards in schools across Kampala to promote student-led waste management including the sorting and processing of recyclables. Finalists will be given the opportunity to implement their designs and will use the recyclables they collect to create artistic projects for their communities.

Well done Cleofash! Grow Movement is excited to hear how this project progresses. Wishing you good luck for the future!
