Akankunda Veronicah
Executive Director, Uganda


Veronicah studied Mass communication and television production at Nairobi Film School and graduated with BA in 2009. She worked with some of the major media houses in Kampala including NTV and NBS & UBC as a producer for lifestyle shows for 5 years. She later joined Jubilee life insurance company as a risk advisor in the area of life insurance for seven years. She is also a Rotarian with great passion for health promotion outreach. It is from the above experiences that she identified practical and policy discriminations among the young and middle aged towards elderly. She consequently conceived the elderly home idea and
she started some voluntary elderly outreach after which she did a course in Geriatric nursing to gain more professional skills in the area.
