I was born a normal child but later caught polio which I survived though with a legacy of weak limbs. As a disabled child, my educational opportunities were not as many, as it would not often make any economic sense to invest in a "disabled" child when scores of "abled" children competed for the same scarce resources. However, in away, things worked out miraculously and God's work was put to test: I managed to beat the odds. I am now a student of MA in Educational Planning, Economic, and International Development; at the Institute of Education, London University.
I know it has been such a "Long Walk to Freedom" I mean to where I am now. And the challenges are quite numerous to children who share my situation. I co.founded an organisation: Access For Action Uganda (ACFA Uganda) to assist but I feel I not yet done enough.
My interests are in the field of rights, education, social justice, international cooperaion or development cooperation with particulay zeal to reach out to those often marginalised in mainstream development planning, including education.
My dream is to work with an established International Agency, UN Agency, so as to furnish an appropriate role model for disabled children, parents, and communities in Uganda/Africa who seemed to have litte regard for children with disabilities.
