Mona Hanna-Attisha

We've all heard the tragic mishandling of water in Flint, Michigan. The community was getting sick from the foul-smelling, and discolored water piped in from the Flint River to save money. The water wasn't treated properly, it had high amounts of lead and other toxins.

Mona Hanna-Attisha is a Pediatrician who conducted a study that proved there were high levels of lead. She revealed her findings at a press conference where she was later ridiculed by a spokesperson from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. Eventually, her results were deemed to be accurate, and because of her, the State and Federal government granted the city of Flint roughly $350 million to address this crisis.

Born in Uganda and raised on a farm, Judith Bakirya was awarded a scholarship to attend a prestigious secondary school, Mt St Mary's College Namagunda and another government scholarship to attend Birmingham University in the UK. She left her job in the city to return to farming. 

Bakirya used money from her savings and a small loan and founded Busaino Fruits & Trees, with more than 1,000 acres, her flourishing farm is a testament that her love and passion for farming has brought her success. Judith Bakirya believes in paying her achievements forward by honoring her mother's hard work with paying for school fees for six poor but bright girls.

She is evolving her farm into a learning model where she can teach and strengthen other smaller farms with better equipment for improved and efficient productivity while increasing the number of schools teaching kids to fight climate change.
