I was born in Uganda in 1984 but moved to the UK when I was 6 years old. I started going back to Uganda when I was 16 years of age as my mum has always believed in teaching us children the importance of our background and where we come from.
Even though I remembered nothing about Uganda, I can say I fell in love with it straight away, the people, the atmosphere, the traditions and culture. I was moved by the spirit of the people, even with some not having a lot they still live life to the fullest, working with minimum opportunities and resources.
I work and live in the UK full time currently as Head of Compliance with Social Personnel, a recruitment agency that works with Social Workers. I have always wanted to do something to make a difference in Uganda, however big or small. When I met Phiona Kusingura and she told me about ’TUKUNDANE ‘’ (Let’s love each other)” .I instantly knew that this was what I had been waiting for.
