Since April 2012 to date, Ms. Owaraga is the Managing Director of CPAR Uganda, however, her wealth of professional experience spans since 1992, during which period she has worked as a senior executive with multiple civil society organisations operating in Uganda; and as an independent consultant.

    I am so looking forward to receiving and mentoring the first cohort of CPAR Uganda’s “Mentoring Young Adults into Innovators Against Poverty” programme.

    Many times we wanted to give up. We are glad we persisted. Little by little makes a bundle and our bundle is taking shape. The count down has begun, next Tuesday, 21st January 2020 we begin.

  4. So interesting a a profile! You have created a masterpiece that has restored all lost hopes. For the little time I read about you, beleive me when I say, “you have become my main model for success” with the idea of mentoring us into innovators; a sword we shall use against poverty. I am tempted to say you are one in a million and The United Nations General Assembly should appreciate you in your endeavors towards ending poverty by 2030.
    The idea of training us will surely remain a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
    Many thanks for your intervention in matters that affect the people of the North and Uganda at large.
