Spring 2014 in Review: GDE Meets with Ugandan Ambassador

Ambassador Wonekha

Spring 2014 ASP student Nicole Noyes (Cedarville University) participated in the Global Development Enterprise track, working with two other team members on researching biofuels in Uganda.  As part of her internship with Values & Capitalism at the American Enterprise Institute, she met Ugandan ambassador Oliver Wonekha and set up a meeting with her for the GDE team.  GDE track director Gerry Hartis comments, “Nicole’s connection with Ambassador Wonekha is just one example of the opportunities that the Global Development Enterprise team has for engaging directly with leaders of the developing world here in Washington.”

“Ambassador Oliver Wonekha of Uganda was kind enough to meet with me to discuss the empowerment of Uganda’s women through investments in agriculture and energy,” Nicole said.  “She described the living conditions of rural families, the role of women in the country’s economy, and other pressing policy issues in Uganda. We look forward to sustaining this exciting relationship with the Ugandan Embassy.”
