Tribute to Ms. Ritah Nansereko

To live in hearts we leave behind is not to dieThomas Campbell

Please join us to mourn the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Ms Ritah Nansereko, who was a dedicated and passionate member of Uganda’s Civil Society fraternity.

An accomplished Human Rights advocate, Ritah was the Executive Director of African Women and Youth Action for Development (AWYAD) and Co-chair for Charter for Change. She served diligently as a proactive member of our Steering Committee at the Humanitarian Platform for Local and National Humanitarian Actors in Uganda. Ritah was a strong policy advocate in the Humanitarian Sector who championed the Localisation agenda and the rights of refugees.

More than a simple risk-taker, Ritah was generous, compassionate and always ready to share a light moment. She never missed an opportunity to inspire everyone around her.

Our hearts and prayers are always with her family.

Rest in Peace, Ritah. Your life was a blessing, your memory is a treasure.
