“One of my biggest successes working with rural communities and as a counsellor and a research assistant was to reunite a street child with its parents. And the parents whose drinking was the cause of the problem have now stopped being drunkards.”Auma Jacquline
This is among the reasons that Auma Jacquline 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.”
Auma is of Lango ancestry, from Alebtong District. She holds a Diploma in Social Work and Social Administration from Nsamizi Training Institute of Social Education. 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 Auma, we at CPAR Uganda will contribute to achieving our vision and that people in her home area, Cungaciki Village, Apala Sub-County, Moroto County, Alebtong 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.
