Julius' story

I was born in a rural district of Lira, now Amolatar, in the war-ravaged region of Uganda. I come from the community that has a limited access to education there are barely any university graduates over there. My parents always struggled to put food on the table. My first job was at the age of 10, fetching water for local construction sites. I have worked hard ever since to relieve pressure from my family.

Throughout my academic career, I have consistently demonstrated my commitment to academic excellence. As a result, I have received several awards and accolades for outstanding academic achievement and for exceptional community service. My scholarship has lifted a significant financial burden, and I am now able to focus on my studies without worrying about the cost of accommodation and other expenses.

The generosity of donors who invested in my education will not be wasted. When I succeed, I promise to give another Scholar an opportunity similar to the one I received.
