Mandela Washington Fellowship
Miriam Modong Dangasuk has over two years experience working in the upstream petroleum industry as a Measurements and Logging Field Engineer. For over a year now, Miriam has been a Water and Habitat Engineer at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). She mainly focuses on rehabilitation of boreholes using solar panels as a source of clean energy to pump water to communities in remote areas for household and irrigation purposes. Miriam also works voluntarily with several clubs and associations making energy and environmentally sustainability information available for public access, using various ways to disseminate it. Miriam holds a bachelor's degree in Chemical and Process Engineering with Honors from Moi University, Kenya. Miriam is committed to pushing for development of better policies and legislation to govern against current bad energy and environmental practices in her country. Upon completion of the Mandela Washington Fellowship, Miriam plans to start mentoring centers in South Sudan to continue creating awareness, especially at the grass root levels, on green energy because the existing institutional frameworks and agencies in charge of implementing this are weak.
