I was born and raised in Bushenyi district in Uganda, in a single parent household, the 8th child in a family of 11 children. Since my mother never got a chance to go to school, after losing our father when we were still young, she worked hard to make sure we have a good future; but because we were many, we grew up in an environment of poverty and hardships.
I dropped out of school after my Ordinary level of education because of lack of school fees, and then my brother encouraged me to join a Primary teachers college which I saw as sending me to hell because of the burning childhood dream of becoming a nurse.
I decided to leave my family and moved on to Kampala and started working and then later I decided to do a diploma in cosmetology at Buganda loyal institute - Kampala.
Life wasn’t all that easy because the little money I was getting, I had to pay my tuition fees as well as taking care of my family in the village especially my mother.
My faith was in God and indeed he adopted me and guided me at all times.
Tears could fill my eyes whenever I saw people suffering with poverty because such conditions take me back to my early days in the village. So I decided to bring some homeless people to my house and I started taking care of them which changed my life and whenever I could come back from work and find them happy, that would give me a lot of joy and put a smile on my face though my income wasn't all that much but I could share it with them and my family, and pay school fees for those in school.
My dream was to start an orphanage home in future so that I can give some help to my fellow Ugandans who are suffering just like the way I was, and I thank God he Has made it to pass.
I am so thankful to my husband Mr. Scott Kather, his family and all my friends who are supporting this ministry in order to make a difference in the lives of the poor people. And I believe that every one of us has a right to have a good life and enjoy all the benefits in life.
I work in the department of environmental service aid/ safety at Waynesboro hospital Pennsylvania – USA and still want to fulfill my dream of becoming a registered nurse.
Words of Hope
I want to encourage all the single mothers that you can make it; if you only set a goal, focused and with a lot of determination.
You can make it if you don't look back to the past, but put all your trust in God. My mother made it, and I believe you can do the same if you believe in yourselves.
"GOD BLESS YOU"
