Ritah is 25 and lives in Wakiso.  She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Governance and International Relations.  She founded Equality Mission Uganda, an organization that seeks to promote good governance through public policy analysis, participatory democracy, and enhanced civic accountability towards social change.  Ritah sees a lack of civic participation as one of the key drivers of poor public service delivery and government program implementation.  Her idea is to explore avenues that can bridge the gap between citizens and governance, ensuring that government is held to account throughout and able to make better decisions when it comes to governing in the communities they represent.
