Louis is a trustee and founder of Universities Together Empowering Development (UniTED), a charity which aims to connect and support students around the world who are interested in development. He spent two years working in Jinja, a town in Uganda at the source of the Nile, splitting his time between UniTED and Whave (a water charity), and travelling around Uganda on his motorbike. He is now studying an MSc in Economics of Development at Oxford University.
Louis is a strong believer that students, and young people in general, should develop strong relationships with local practitioners and beneficiaries when volunteering. He believes that through this, young people are best placed to support communities, and grow their skills and understanding.
