Robinah Nanyunja Advocates for a Greener Uganda


Kampala, Uganda–In the war-torn nation of Uganda, years of conflict, political instability and a rapidly expanding population have put considerable strain on the country’s formerly abundant natural resources.
The country’s increased urbanization has resulted in the destruction of its forests and the pollution of its rivers.  In the midst of this Robinah K. Nanyunja, a member of the Women’s Democracy Network, has used her talents as an environmentalist and an entrepreneur to advocate for environmental responsibility and grassroots democracy in her homeland.

A longtime advocate of sustainable development, Nanyunja began her career as a researcher and analyst for projects sponsored by the United Nations as well as the Ugandan government.

 In 2006, she founded her own company, Pilot International, an organization whose objective is “to promote global, sustainable development for the benefit of humanity and the planet.”

In this role, Nanyunja has spearheaded several successful sustainable development projects in local communities, empowering local groups to take ownership of the projects and continue to implement them as a result of her guidance.  Notably, she is implementing a community initiative to promote the use of briquettes as an alternative source of fuel.  The project provided training to members of the local community on converting urban domestic waste into briquettes, which then provides a sustainable
alternative to wood and charcoal.  The project has fostered collaboration between diverse groups, from civic leaders and civil society to women’s development groups and local government officials. As a result of these efforts, Nanyunja was honored with the East African Community Philanthropy award in July 2013 by the East Africa Association of Grant Makers.

Nanyunja’s background in promoting environmental responsibility led her to advocate for increased attention to green politics on the national level. She found a platform for her message through the Ecological Party of Uganda (EPU) where she was elected vice president of the organization in 2010.  In EPU she has worked to enhance the party’s effectiveness by focusing her attention on civic education, mobilizing support and strengthening the party’s structure.  She has also battled corruption within her party.  When the sitting president was involved in a financial scandal, Nanyunja played a major role in investigating the allegations against him.  As a result of her active role in EPU, she was elected President General of the party in 2013.

The EPU, under Nanyunja’s leadership, is preparing for its first major challenge – the national elections in 2016. She is also focused on building the party’s grassroots democracy by empowering leaders at the
local level and plans to hold a delegate’s conference later this year to elect party leaders at all levels, thus taking the first step to secure EPU’s representation in the Ugandan Parliament. Nanyunja is also promoting women’s advancement in the party, stating, “Our plan is to field 10 candidates for parliament and 20 local councilors. My target is to have half of the contestants as women.”

Nanyunja’s political engagement has propelled her to the international stage. She currently serves as the treasurer for the African Greens Federation, a coalition of green political parties from 29 African nations.  In this role, she incorporates an environmental focus into policy on the pan-African level. She also oversees the financing for affiliated parties throughout Africa.

Nanyunja is well aware of the many challenges facing her party in the upcoming elections. However, she is confident that by identifying local leaders who can impact sustainable change in their communities and mobilizing community members to take ownership of sustainability efforts, Uganda can look ahead to a greener future.

Pilot International President awarded for Philanthropy in the East African Community
 
Ms. Robinah K. Nanyunja, President/CEO Pilot International has been awarded with an ”East Africa Community Philanthropy Award” by the East Africa Association of Grant Makers Nairobi Kenya. This is in recognition of her outstanding charity work in community empowerment and sustainable development which has contributed to the strategic social development and the growth of the philanthropic movement within East Africa.

The award was bestowed upon her on the evening of the 25th July 2013 by Ms. Jenny Hodgson, the Executive Director of the Global Fund for Community Foundations, South Africa, at an awards ceremony held at the Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort in Mombasa Kenya.

 According to the Communications Manager at Pilot International, “Ms. Robinah is very deserving of such recognition. She has greatly contributed to community development at different levels, such as, grassroots, corporate, national, local and international. At the corporate, national, and international levels she has provided a global platform to promote the production of green economies by engaging world leaders in clean and renewable energy and other sustainable business innovations. In addition, she has rewarded world leaders for their efforts in promoting the production of green economies through inspiring development projects, with Pilot International Awards.

At the Grassroots and local levels, she has been very instrumental in community development to uplift the standards of the youth, women and men, by mobilizing them into development groups, financing and implementing free community sensitizations and training programmes in briquette making, usage and marketing.  Briquette (cooking charcoal made from domestic waste) is the newly improved charcoal made out of domestic agricultural waste, such as banana, potato, cassava, Irish potato peelings among others. This briquette project is aimed at replacing the traditional charcoal produced from cutting down trees which has contributed to massive deforestation and environmental degradation. The project therefore, helps in reducing deforestation and green house gas (GHG) emissions hence ensuring environmental protection with the following added benefits: Providing clean cooking energy to the community as an alternative to charcoal; providing an innovative solution to waste disposal to improve public health; Engaging the community to initiate sustainable businesses and create their own employment.”

Pilot International President receives a Honorary Award of Excellence from University of Gezira:

Ms. Robinah K. Nanyunja, President & CEO, Pilot International on 21st of January 2013, received a Honorary award of Excellency for her efforts in improving the welfare of the global community through her innovative and humanitarian approaches in sustainable development.

The award was given to her by His Excellency the Vice Chancellor of the University of Gezira Sudan, a re-known community based university in the world. The University of Gezira was established in 1975 to serve the community, and to link education with the requirements of development and make it more relevant to human and environmental needs.

This is evident from the content of educational mission entrusted to it and identified in its function "to study the environment of Sudan and in particular the rural environment, to identify the issues and conduct research around it". With this concept, the University of Gezira began its path exploring problems of society, training professional cadre capable of utilizing the potential of the rural areas of Sudan and conduct basic and applied scientific research to serve the rural community.

Ms. Robinah K. Nanyunja had been invited by his Excellency the Vice Chancellor of University of Gezira to establish collaborative partnerships between Pilot International and Gezira University. During her visit, she visited different faculties, colleges and research institutes and talked to their heads. Furthermore she made presentations to distinguished Professors, Doctors, Deans, Heads of faculties, Institutes, colleges and Departments. In her evaluation remarks she commended the integration of the community programs in the teaching curriculum of the University of Gezira. “I have visited many universities in Africa and beyond, but I have to confess that the University of Gezira is the first of its kind with such extensive community orientation programs, which make it, stand out from world universities. Furthermore, having a dedicated community college specifically to train women who have dropped out of school so as to be able to fully participate in the development process really shows how far the University of Gezira can go to uplift the living standards of women and the community in general. From the philosophy of the University of Gezira, it is very clear that education is useless if it cannot serve the critical needs of the society. It is my wish that other African institutions adopt this modal for the development of their communities.
African problems are African in nature, which need African approaches implemented by African people to sustainably develop the African continent”.
