Dear friend,
Here is what the lord has done for me , since my childhood
Am the first born of my parents and ,

i had a dream of bringing some change to my family and the community at large.
Well, good of me, Uganda started Universal primary education which was totally free, i enjoyed it and passed highly with 10 point average, i wonder if you have the same education system with us over here.

I was very much eager to join secondary school, but there was no way, well, one day i went to one nearby school , just like 20 kms away, i asked for some work, wow, i was given to work in the school compound when am off classes, i was the happiest.

Many students used to laugh at me, but i knew why?
good of me, i could as well, laugh at me when it came to class matters.

After senior four, we sat for the national exams, and i was the best in the whole region, wow!! my name was all over , and everywhere , "How a poor young boy has made it the best!!" imagine how proud i was.!!

Now i knew Ordinary secondary education was over, but there was need for me to join high school, this time it was hard to get a scholarship as, my former school never had high school classes.

One day i had gone to the church , as i was still in holidays, , there came a visitor, he was a missionary , wow, he asked about the where a bouts of the boy who was the best in the region,,, haaa, imagine, what happened, i stood proudly and shouted , Here am!!!!!
haa, he promised to take me for high school education , .

I joined Ebenezer Christian secondary school.
Its found, near Entebbe international airport. This was my first time to come to the town. My entire life was spent in the village.
I studied, Math, Physics, Economics and Art, wow, these are said to be the hardest subjects here , but i was willing and able to.
Its within High school, that i had my first Glance at the computer-for the very first time. though my entire life wanted to reach university and study a computer related course., i had heard that computers do strange things , so i picked interest.

It took me 2 years to complete, wow, i was still the best in our school.

Now seeing i had passed well, and Uganda government has got a sponsorship policy for the best and needy students, i never feared anything, i knew it was my turning point now to get to the university.

I spent over 5 months in the vacation, as i was still waiting for the list of the scholarship beneficially to be published.. haa, it was on 16th June 2007, i was as if struck by lightning, when i found my name missing!!!!!! haa, i really cried, do u know why???? not that i was not needy, not that i never had good results, but because of too much corruption over here.
I lost hope for further education , seeing , that my former sponsor had promised me to only help me at high school.

One day , My sponsor called me, just go and apply , may be something may happen, haa. i applied for only one cause as i was sure of myself, that was Bachelors degree in Information Technology.
i was admitted, but still couldn't find school fees, that was in august 2007.

One day the guy calls me asking if i can get someone to pay me 1/2 fees and he tops up... it was a hard nut to crack my dear, by faith i accepted.
After while , i he calls me , apologizing that the wife has refused him , she said, "My husband has helped you enough".. i really cried.. after like 1 month , universities, opened, and i remained home, wow, i never knew i would get to school.

one morning, he came to my home minus the knowledge of his wife , and gave me 1/2 the fees as he had promised.
wow, i was happy as if i had got full fees. i matched to the university , confidently , i started schooling. life was very hard as , i never had all the requirements, not even a computer of my own as a computer student.
Good of me, i studied hard, to achieve my best.

During the middle of the semester, there came in the faculty , a workshop, and i was selected to be among students to attend, do you know what , i was given money enough to pay my full year.
after the year, i even had better results in the faculty , with a CGPA=4.87/5.0, i hope it was very nice.

i studied very well, till , life came hard when i lost my sponsor in my last year, i almost stopped schooling, but asked the university for scholarship.. they gave me half, and i started typesetting students work to achieve my dream..
in my final semester, i completely almost failed to sit for exams, till, some good Samaritan old lady gave me over 450 us dollars to top up on the loan i struggled to get from the university, wow!!!
that was amazing.


i completed my course in May this year , and graduated with Bachelors degree in Information Technology , i was the best in the whole university, I graduated on 5th March 2011;
Well, am right now in Kampala trying to find some work , to support my parents , brothers and sisters as they need to get back to school, as am seen as a future corner stone to my community.
By the way am a pioneer of university education in my entire clan..


I thank God who has given me that opportunity, though am still facing challenges, with my life .
Am currently not employed, but doing some volunteer job at a church, . i have hope to do something in my community , when i have made some good money , may be start some child care center or a computer school.
The reality is most people from there have never seen a computer.. so strange!!
.keep me in prayer, my rent expires tomorrow,ad i have no other way,than asking for your prayers and support.
Thanks for paying attention to my long back ground.......

That was six days before the Coatesville Police Department in Chester County, PA, USA, shot and blinded a man for eluding them in self defense.

That is the kind of education system America has.

The rich get richer, and the poor get poorer.
