Daniel Ameny [Khalid]
Executive Director

Khalid holds a Bachelor of Statistics and a Master of Science degree in Environmental Health from Makerere and Nkumba Universities. He is a co-founder of P4T in 2007 and has worked as Project Manager from 2012 - 2019. He is currently the general manager of P4TUganda.

Khalid has lived in Uganda as a refugee for over 20 years after fleeing the civil war in the Congo in 1997. At just 10 years old, he was separated from his family and everyone he has ever known to an unknown place to survive. Only together with his brother did he get to Uganda by military transport.

10 years later, in 2007, he and some friends wanted to change the widespread belief that "we will go home next year" as the experiences among his fellow refugees. They realized that the possibility of returning home was no longer an option, and they believed that it was time to start looking ahead to a new future.

This is how P4T saw the light of day with a vision to strengthen the community to become healthy, safe and self-sufficient by offering knowledge and skills. To date, P4T offers quality education to over 500 refugee children, strengthens their own income opportunities for vulnerable women and young people, provides increased knowledge about health, and has had health camps, in addition to offering community support services to the very vulnerable .

Khalid has previously worked in various positions with MIFUMI (Monitoring and Evaluation Coordinator for SURGE Program), Nkumba university (Lecturer at the School of Sciences) and at Datasoft Consultancy (Research and Statistics Consultants).

His education consists of 2 DAFI; Bachelor 2008 - 2011 and Master 2013 - 2015. His research in the efficiency of solar energy on rooftops gave him a Chancellor's Best Masters Dissertation award from Nkumba University in 2015. Khalid is also a Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Program alumnus from 2016, and in 2018 he completed a 2 week Global Learning Seminar by Kolping eV in Germany.
