In 2014, we found Christine Namara, a brilliant young girl who was not going to school after the death of both her parents and only younger brother. She was the only one left of her family and was living with her uncle. We spoke to her guardian who agreed to work together with us to take care of her wellbeing.
At Primary Level, she emerged the best student overall in her whole school and community that year, with aggregate 10. We decided to enroll her in her dream school, Kyebambe Girls Schools, Fort Portal. A historical school in the region and among the best in the country. Her dream is to become a doctor.
At a tender age, Robert Karungi lost his mother and only sister. He grew up with his grandmother and no one knew anything about his father. A few years back, some man had come claiming to be his father and spent a few minutes at his grandmother’s house. He promised to come back and see him. He left behind a phone contact which has been switched off since.
Because he missed school for a couple of years, Robert could not catch up with his primary level education. It had been too long. He requested us to take him to a mechanical school. Today, he is enrolled there doing his two-year training in Fort Portal town.
