Digging Into Making a Difference

Benjamin Grundy ’21 found a way to make an impact during the pandemic, working with a Ugandan company through a Miller Center fellowship.

I’ve come to realize that making a difference in the world and being a change maker is something that I aspire to do,” says Benjamin Grundy ’21. “And I wasn’t sure exactly how I’d be able to do that.”

To get a handle on what that could look like, Grundy applied for and received a Global Social Benefit Fellowship with the Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship. Through the program he worked with Cycle Connect, a Ugandan organization that loans assets like ox, plows, and bicycles to people who farm small holdings. It was eye opening for Grundy.

“It’s an opportunity to produce very meaningful work that is actively doing all of these amazing things,” he says. “And it teaches you that you can do amazing work. You can produce something that is meaningful.”
