Am so grateful for the training we were given – Module I: Understanding Poverty in Rural Uganda of CPAR Uganda’s project, “Mentoring Young Adults into Innovators against Poverty.” If there is something I really lacked then it was a saving culture.
How I wished I got the knowledge before completing school, am sure savings from my pocket money would have done something for me at the moment. I wasted money. But, as they say: better late than never.

I have learnt to save. I had a small job for less than a month before lock down ruined it. And from my savings, I was able to purchase two piglets and they are doing good. I don’t think I’ll ever waste money again. Thank you once again CPAR Uganda.
