Restored Hope

I am Ritah Naluwagga a CGC beneficiary. I am also a "big Sister", the CGC Alumni working and work with Capital Shoppers Limited in Kampala currently. I grew up as a total orphan and was brought up by a maternal uncle since i was 2 years old. By the time my parents passed, i was living with my grandmother before my uncle took me to his home. Of course life was not easy especially because i lived in the village in Bushenyi. I was sick most of the time, i did not go to school and all this came to an end when my Uncle brought me to his home in Kampala.

I completed a 1 month Patriotism Course - Joyce Mary Takali

Joyce Mary Takali
My name is Joyce Mary Takali and i am in my senior six vacation. I went to school at Luwero Secondary School. I attended a patriotism course and completed it successfully at Uganda National Technical College Elgon in Mbale District. The course took one month that is to say from 30th June - 29th July. I got to know about that course through my friend who heard an announcement from the Luwero District Resident District Commissioner's Office (RDC) that they were calling upon 30 senior six leavers from different schools of Luwero District. The requirements to attend the course were a photocopy of U.A.C.E results and then an identity card of the former school.

CGC did not only empower my brains but my hands too!

Catherine at work
I am Catherine Nalubega from Kiwoko Town Council, Kikamulo Sub County - Nakaseke District. I am also a beneficiary of CGC and joined their programme after my mother was not in position to meet my education needs. I was then admitted in Kiwoko Secondary School in senior one. After my senior 4, i was advised to go to a vocational institution where i would maximize my potential in vocational skills. I enrolled for a course in tailoring and design at St. Mary's Kasala Vocational Institute where i completed after two years. I am so grateful to CGC for their continued support.

This year, i am very delighted, happy and extremely joyful for the struggle CGC has gone through with me. I have finally graduated from Makerere University. This took place on 22nd January 2013 during the 63rd graduation ceremony. It was a memorable day and event. I am thankful to CGC for being able to pay my school fees right from Secondary School through to University. More good news, i am now working with Uganda Pediatric Association (UPA) as a newsletter writer. it is an interesting job and i love it.
I just want to say thank you so very much and i will forever be indebted to you.
