Their academic promise, Milton and Fred won scholarships to Dartmouth College in the U.S. Their village sold chicken, goats, and cows to pay for airfare to the U.S. with only one request: “Do not forget us.” They later attended Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, began working with their father and home community on the dream of bringing healthcare to their village. Lwala families recently launched innovation hub to train youth on knowledge sharing, talent development and opportunity for #Innovation.
