"practice what you preach"
I am a self made disabled person from the remote villages of Luwero. I have been denied several opportunities simply because am disabled. This has challenged me to work hard be somebody and create a platform or avenues of empowering several other people like me (PWDs and the marginalised).
Despite going through Public schools, I got government sponsorship to do my dream degree of Law which am finishing on 19 June.
I am a very hardworking liberal and open minded person, a perfectionist and one who believes in team work because "no man is an island"
Am passionate about advocacy and leadership
In the bid to test our idea, I have indirectly posted different portions of it on our Facebook page and also on my personal account. Am overwhelmed by the responses from Ugandan and abroad. Some inbox me and they share with me their touching experience in looking for jobs Others email me seeking to work together with us Others give positive comments/recommendations while majority just applaud us. Unfortunately this idea/project is just kick starting.
If only we can get at least $10,000 the sky will be the limit in progressively solving unemployment among persons with disabilities in Uganda
