Why I need the iSTEPup Foundation
It would not be possible for me to achieve my dream without the help of iSTEPup. It would have been impossible. I am coming from a family of 6 were I am the first born. My mother and father separated when I was young. My mum is an illiterate woman. In Uganda if someone has not gone to school, its hard to find a job as the unemployment rate is very high. Because of God’s mercy I was able to study.
Now the new transition in my life of being an amputatee wouldn’t permit me to find a good job to be able to take my self through school. My siblings are very young, so no one would help me. So I am very sure that without this great help, I wouldn’t be in school by now.
The other fact is that, school, especially medical school in Uganda is very expensive, so I wouldn’t be able to pay my own fees. To facilitate
myself through school, I would need more than 10 years to save enough money to sustain myself through school.
