We were so thrilled to get this letter and news that this young woman recently graduated from University. Read her story here!
I Mbambu Dorothy, I happily appreciate the support you had to put in through my education. It’s your support that has pushed me to this level I have reached and I think if it had not been you, I would not have managed due to my family background. Am born in a polygamous family whereby my mother’s side is neglected and school dues are not given making my education rights denied. There was always confusion and quarrels which made me a vulnerable girl in the family. We are born eight on our mother’s side but its only me who has managed to attain this level of education because of your support through KIDA the others dropped out of school along the way in secondary due to lack of money
The Friends of Ruwenzori started supporting me when I was in S.1 (2008) up to University level which I completed this year (2017) and also graduated and graduated in Sept at Mountains of the Moon University in Fort Portal with a Bachelors degree in Social Work and Community Development.
Through the support you had to put in, I hope for a bright future. Though I have not yet got a job, God being my helper I will get one. I promise to help other vulnerable girls like me in case God leads me a job. You have done your part of empowering me and adding value in my life through this education, thank you so much. My family and I are happy to have a child in a family with a degree and all this happiness is because of you the Friends of Ruwenzori. Keep praying for as am looking for a job.
May the good Lord bless you abundantly.
