“I am currently a teacher and in the course of my work I meet with disadvantaged children and parents. I take it upon myself to do counselling and helping them with problem solving. There is this girl, for example, whose mother died, is living with her father and step mother. The step mother was mistreating her. I successfully counselled them to do better and even got the school to make special provisions for the girl.”

This is among the reasons that Acio Sharon 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.”

Acio Sharon is of Lango ancestry, from Kole District. She holds a Bachelor’s of Art Degree in Education from Kampala International 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 Acio Sharon, we at CPAR Uganda will contribute to achieving our vision and that people in her home area, Olaya Village, Akalo Sub-County, Kole County, Kole 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. “After learning, I opened up a shop and I do sell even tomatoes in it with out shame, unlike before.” Great insights you have shared in your up-date Sharon. If many people are educated by their parents who sell tomatoes and other food items in market stalls, why are we then the educated ashamed of selling tomatoes? Indeed, the importance of CHALLENGING CATEGORIES. Keep on challenging and becoming a better person each time.


  2. To be honest in my past life before I I was menterod at CPAR Uganda Ltd I used to take things for granted and I would think that money can only be got from white collar job’s but in the module one of understanding poverty in rural Uganda I learnt that I have to be creative and have some small business of my own so after learning I opened up a shop and I do sell even tomatoes in it with out shame unlike before so I learned to love what I am doing so that I can get money to save like now I put 20000shillings weekly as my saving in the VLSA group and some 2000 shillings in the savings box and when the project of challenging categories came educated unemployed youths I have been very able to move and understand that us the youth are crying for jobs yet it’s because of our lack of creativity and laziness I also learnt dieting so at least I make sure I eat balanced diet like we used to do at CPAR and I do serious budgeting before purchasing.
