“It was a great honour having the CPAR Uganda team visiting us young adult innovators in our respective business places. When the team came to my ICT shop in Lumumba, Lira City, the community around were wondering what was happening. They saw huge cameras, new faces, movements and actions taking place inside the shop and outside; making me to respond to many questions from the community after the exercise. I simply told them those are team of experts making follow-ups on us whom they trained in business management! The team also visited our home. My parents were happy for me as I made them proud as people in the neighborhood saw camera interviews live from home; and others were saying they use to see only on TV but it was live/physically that day. I love the commitments CPAR Uganda is doing in the fight against poverty through making the young adult innovators understand poverty in details, and promoting hardwork among us. Am happy to be one of the innovators under CPAR Uganda. Credits to MD CPAR Uganda.”James Opollo, beneficiary of CPAR Uganda Mentoring Young Adults into Innovators Against Poverty.
