Changemaker: Ritah Namirimu
Country of Implementation: Uganda
In Mwima village, Uganda, where 8 out of 10 school-going children struggle with literacy, Ritah and her passionate group are determined to make a difference. They are creating the Limitless Ideation Center and Community Library to spark playful learning, innovation, and community development. Inspired by Ritah's own transformative education experience, the center aims to be a space for connection, mentorship, and education.
The vision is to provide a platform for limitless learning, skill-building, and collaborative thinking, centered around education, innovation, and community engagement. The community library, housed in a freely offered building, will offer educational materials, inspirational stories, and mini STEM projects for youth aged 4-16.
Ritah and her friends are actively seeking support from local personalities and experts, including Mr. Semusu Ananias for playful learning training and Ms. Immaculate Nantaayi for book mobilization. The Limitless Ideation Center and Community Library symbolize the power of youth-driven initiatives, aiming to transform ideas into tangible projects that shape the future of rural Uganda.
