“I am a very active, respectful, hardworking, highly committed, and result oriented person, especially when assigned both desk-based activities, fieldwork activities and research activities.”Okello Jimmy Ezra
This is among the reasons that Okello Jimmy Ezra 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.”
Okello is of Lango ancestry, from Kwania District. He holds a Bachelor of Management Science from Kyambogo 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 Okello, we at CPAR Uganda will contribute to achieving our vision and that people in his home area, Atwar Village, Nambweso Sub-County, Ayabi County, Kwania District in Northern Uganda, who come in contact with him will proactively work towards them living healthy and dignified lives during which their rights are respected.
