I am really humbled to be part of the young adults being mentored by CPAR Uganda Ltd, under our “Mentoring Young Adults into Innovators against Poverty” project.
My appreciation goes to the Managing Director and her team who came to visit me at my shoes business at Amugu Trading Center. It made me feel like am doing what is of great value both to me and my community at large.

His ancestral village is Atwar in Nambweso Sub-County in Ayabi County in Kwania District; but he currently resides with his sister in Lira City. He is a double orphan, both his parents passed away.
Some of my friends who are also unemployed graduates are inspired with what am doing and they’re yet to start their own businesses too.
