“I believe in innovation to solve poverty, starting with myself initiating a business to supplement my income.”

Oluka Robert, Young Innovator

This is one of the reasons that Ouka gave as to why he 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.”

Oluka is of Kumam ancestry, from Kaberamaido District. He holds a degree in Development Studies from Ndejje University. We are delighted to have him as part of the first cohort of our mentoring programme and we look forward to working with him and to contributing to enabling him to achieve his long term goals.

In turn, it is our expectation that through him, we at CPAR Uganda will contribute to achieving our vision and that people in his home area, Akorot Village in Bululu Sub-County in Kalaki County in Kaberamaido District in North-Eastern Uganda, who come in contact with him will proactively work towards them living healthy and dignified lives during which their rights are respected.
