Summit: 
Frankfurt-2013
Summit: 
Nairobi-2012

When Mwalimu Musheshe was a university student during the eighties, he was active in opposing the existing regime, for which he was tortured and imprisoned for a year. In 1984, he began working for the Uganda Food and Peace Project. Over the last decade, he has changed how academics, policy makers, and business people approach rural development issues in Uganda. Musheshe was the chairman of Uganda’s National Agricultural Advisory Services (Naads) board of directors. A Senior Ashoka Fellow, he serves on the boards of national development associations, and is one of the few people who continuously challenge policy makers to think outside the box in introducing effective measures to combat rural poverty in Uganda.
