Matini Janepher pursued a B.A. in Economics from Makerere University. This was due to her passion to promote community economic developments in the rural areas of Uganda starting with her community in Mayuge where she first identified the need. To fulfill the above, she initiated a campaign “Nhiife initiative” with fellow peers against teenage pregnancy in 2020. This initiative invites Mayuge skilled youth to uplift unskilled teenage mothers in various technical skills. Today, teenage mothers, through cooperatives have started up small-scale businesses hence promoting business enterprising in Mayuge district. She is also a female youth councilor of Mayuge 2021-2026 which has best positioned her to serve the youth effectively. Janepher is a co-founder of “Women Income Network”, one of the winning ventures of the social venture challenge at the Baobab summit of 2021. This venture aims at increasing the household income of female-headed households through maggot farming.
