Housed at the University of Virginia’s Contemplative Sciences Center, Dalai Lama Fellows cultivates and supports a global movement of next generation leaders integrating contemplative work with social innovation to solve global challenges in locally adapted ways that promote human flourishing. It offers emerging leaders a rigorous, interdisciplinary program on ways to be a different kind of leader, a leader that connects and cares for self, extends genuine compassion to others, and works for our common humanity
Ogweno Stephen who is the CEO and founder Stowelink was accepted for the class of 2020 Dalai Lama fellowship with one of our initiatives at Stowelink on mental health dubbed COZ IM HAPPY PROJECT. Coz I’m Happy Project works majorly with young people to talk about issues of mental health and young people. The project initially wanted to achieve the goal of making mental health structures and advocated known and utilized in the 20 universities and colleges that Stowelink works in but with COVID 19 the project took a more online approach making its services, consultations and talks available through the biweekly online webinars.

TWO OF STOWELINK RESEARCH PAPERS ACCEPTED FOR THE WORLD NCDS CONGRESS AT UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN.
The World NCD Congress’s mission is to stimulate multisectoral research, learning communities, and collaborations that will utilize a data-to-knowledge-to-action paradigm to improve, promote, and preserve health among all. The scientific program will unite basic, clinical, data and implementation science approaches to examine how to translate research from these domains into policies that can promote health and prevent chronic disease and disability. All delegates will explore how such approaches may be applied in practice locally, nationally, and internationally.
Two of Stowelink’s research led by Ogweno Stephen were also accepted for presentation and publishing at the world NCDs congress which was set to happen in the university of Michigan latter in the year. The conference has since been postponed for 2021 but on the brighter side is that the abstracts will be published in the International Journal Of Non-Communicable Diseases.
