Background Information

Source of inspiration

I was inspired to start the Wakulima Ni Sisi Initiative by my late dad. I grew up seeing my dad do charity work for my community through Church where he used to get sponsors who offered relief food and initiated resilient projects in our community to counter adverse effects of drought.

Having pursued a degree in Community Resource Management and Extensions I have gained passion for community work and being inspired by the work of my dad, I’m applying these skills to offer solutions for addressing food security in my community through a professional and more sustainable approach.

Want to Start a Social Enterprise? You Should Come To Watson

By Uncategorized

Kim White wrote about his experience at Watson Institute in Boulder, Colorado.

At the end of the fourth week of classes at The Watson Institute I have to pause and reflect how time is a weird substance. Four weeks have flown by but the experience has felt like a four-month journey. I’m sure some of you might be curious about exactly what I’m up to after crowdfunding my way to get here, but I think I wouldn’t do justice to try and explain it all. And if you’re thinking of starting your own social enterprise I really think the only solution would be for you to apply to come and experience it yourself. It might be a bit premature for me to make claims that it’ll change your life, so in spite of what I literally just said two sentences ago, I’ll still try explain the three things that have made the experience great so far to try to inspire you to put in an application before October 15.


First and foremost the people you meet make coming all the way here worth it. This ranges from the people at Watson, to the mentors we all get assigned, to the people of the incredible city of Boulder where we are based.

OP-ED – Liberia’s ‘Missing Billions’ Case is More Than What It Seems for Liberia’s Development

By Uncategorized

Wainright Acquoi, a Watson Scholar at Lynn University, wrote an op-ed regarding Liberia’s “missing billions” case. The piece was published on The Bush Chicken.

A few days ago, I woke up to an email from the director of Social Impact at my school: “Wainright: Stop by the Lab when you get a chance. I have an article for you on Liberia from today’s New York Times.”

My friend Jerry, who has worked for over 40 years in social entrepreneurship and economic development in the U.S., the Caribbean, and Africa, has developed a deep interest in Liberia since our first interaction about four weeks ago.

We have had conversations on topics ranging from politics and governance, peace and security, education and youth development, and business. Since then, he has been researching about the country, and we have even been discussing possible partnerships to begin some work in Liberia.

Prior to receiving his email, I had been following the “missing billions” situation on social media and through online media outlets like FrontPage Africa and The Bush Chicken. Honestly, I am still confused about what exactly happened and where the case currently is. But I am even more worried.

Meet The 21-Year-Old Entrepreneur And Animal Rights Activist Bringing Vegan Milk To India

By Uncategorized

Abhay Rangan, a Watson Institute scholar, was featured in Forbes for his vegan milk company.

Eighteen months ago Abhay Rangan, a 21-year-old engineering student, was traveling 500km every week on his moped throughout Bangalore in southern India with a backpack full of plant-based milks he and his mother had made in their home kitchen. Not only was this delivery method inefficient, the products weren’t shelf-stable, resulting in many of them spoiling before reaching their destination.

“It was a difficult job,” Rangan admits. “We manufactured our first few thousand liters using our blenders, pots and pans. The challenge was that we were too small to outsource things like manufacturing to someone else, so we had to redo several orders when, for example, the almond milk spoiled before it got to the customer.”

This was the scrappy beginning of Veganarke, the company Rangan founded after starting and running a nonprofit animal rights organization for two years when he was just 16. “We were a bunch of teenagers in different Indian cities doing campaigns for veganism on the streets,” he explains. “A common argument I came across was that the vegan alternatives were expensive. I looked around and there were very few exclusively vegan businesses that were accessible to me on a student budget. Veganarke was born out of a desire to make vegan products affordable and accessible to everyone.”
