Looking back in 2015 when a bold decision was made to register this great initiative as the first student founded NGO, I can gladly testify that we have moved our dream and indeed impacted on thousands of lives at individual, community, city and national level. It's quite satisfying to see a 1st year student at the University join the many students' led projects.This has indeed changed the entire regular learning sphere to an extra effort of Acquiring projects work experience and skills inspired by the students themselves and recent graduates! Considering our excellent relationship with Makerere University School of Public Health, faculty and its administration, other development partners,it therefore guarantees our guided actions tailored towards students impacting on fellow students, communities and the country through research, innovations and excellent service. Makerere University Environmental Health Students' Association (MUEHSA) inspired and supported the development of ICHIO and therefore will remain it's life partner.

Finally, allow me to salute students, development partners, the board of advisors, ICHIO core team and all friends on different platforms, we sincerely treasure your support and contribution towards an empowered, healthy and productive communities.
