Pilot International was the first private sector driven International Organization based in Uganda, whose purpose is to promote global sustainable development for the benefit of humanity and the planet. Since its foundation, Pilot International has continued to be dedicated to provide a global platform to its members, partners, subscribers and environmental responsible minds to promote Global Sustainability by provision of direct business, funding and partnership opportunities and linkages through International conferences, Publishing and Dissemination, Membership services, Projects, Rewarding and celebrating Global Innovations.

These projects and investments have provided hundreds of short and long-term jobs to Ugandans, which has resulted into an improved quality of life.
Besides this, Nanyunja has spearheaded several successful sustainable development projects in local communities, empowering local groups to take ownership of the projects and continue to implement them as a result of her guidance. Notably, she is implementing a community initiative to promote the use of briquettes as an alternative source of fuel. The project provided training to members of the local community on converting urban domestic waste into briquettes, which then provides a sustainable alternative to wood and charcoal. The project has fostered collaboration between diverse groups, from civic leaders and civil society to women’s development groups and local government officials, and has provided sources of income to the beneficiaries thereby fostering grassroots economic development.
