Fellowship Experience

YELP, to me, is a space that invests in the world’s greatest resource, which is human potential. Being a part of this fellowship has exposed me to a vibrant community of young change makers who are committed to making a contribution towards the development and general wellbeing of people across East Africa and beyond.

The diversity and balance among Fellows makes the YELP experience even better, because I get to learn from, share with and have a team of individuals supporting me in different capacities.
