“I love working with the community, especially solving their health problems, especially women.”

Gumkit Ann Parlaker, Young Adult Innovator

This is one of the reasons that Gumkit gave as to why she is the most deserving young adult to be awarded a scholarship and to be selected to participate in our CPAR Uganda programme: “Mentoring Young Adults into Innovators against Poverty.”

Gumkit is of Acholi ancestry, from Kitgum District and is currently a student at Lira University. We are delighted to have her as part of the first cohort of our mentoring programme and we look forward to working with her and to contributing to enabling her to achieve her long term goals.

In turn, it is our expectation that through her, we at CPAR Uganda will contribute to achieving our vision and that people in her home area, Bobi Central Village in Kitgum-Matidi Sub-County in Cwaa East County, in Kitgum District in Northern Uganda, who come in contact with her will proactively work towards them living healthy and dignified lives during which their rights are respected.

  1. My first encounter with CPAR UG has been ablessing in disguise,it is one that i can never forget my whole life ,
    I have learnt that life skills are virtal ,from learning the importance of a balanced diet which is less valued in my community and may be the case in other communities in Uganda, I also learnt that consistent availability of food production by small holder farmers and farming families helps to reduce poverty combined with financial assistance, saving culture and farming skills .
    Budgeting, planning and saving has long been part of my life .Upto date, my journey has not ended as am now participating in challenging category project .
    “I love working with the community especially women, especially solving their health problems “. The current project has exposed me to work with members of the community especially females who are in the front lines of development but are invisible to many
    Though I have not been able to solve their health problems as stated, i pray that in future ,I will be able to

  2. Am hoping to learn from her especially on how to solve health issue in the community since its my passion of giving back to my people as we shall interact on how extension service can also help a lot to change the livelihood of the poor in the community. That’s my position of expertise and I can’t wait to all these diverse group of young youth. God above all!!!!!
