Introducing myself and my journal: Education for the Africa's Girl Child

About Me:
I was born and raised in a rural village in Masaka, south western Uganda. I grew up in poverty but education has enabled me to chess my dreams. I hold a degrees in Computer Science and Philosophy and currently pursuing M.A and STB in Theology. I would love to use my education and gifts to benefit the less fortunate brothers and sisters in Africa.

My Passions:
Education for Africa's children to empower them take charge of their own destiny and be the forces of sustained development for Africa.

My Challenges:
Fundraising and grants - for education in Africa

My Vision for the Future:
A world where every child has access to quality education, health care, and love!

My Areas of Expertise:
Computing, Non profit, fundraising
