“I have established a business in Lira together with two others. I have plans to establish a community based organisation that targets poor urban youth, to provide them with hands-on skills, for example repair of electronics.”

Opolo James

This is among the reasons that Opolo James 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.”

Opolo is of Lango ancestry, from Amolatar District. He holds a Bachelor in Information Communication Technology from Gulu 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 Opolo, we at CPAR Uganda will contribute to achieving our vision and that people in his home area, Aburkot Village, Amolatar Town Council, Kioga County, Amolatar 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.
