Ojok Okello is a development manager, community organiser, and social entrepreneur who has been using his global experience and education to support a community development project in Okere, his father’s home village in Northern Uganda.

The social entreprise, also known as Okere City, has organically grown to include several initiatives towards education, adult literacy, community sports, health, and the processing of shea butter to create a hub of social and economic activity that allows inhabitants to contribute to and shape the development of their community.

In our chat, we discuss how it all started, the perpectives and beliefs that have powered Ojok’s resilience, and how he believes we could all contribute to the development of our communities.
