A Child Is Given The Gift Of Education For The First Time Her Mother Has Hope For Their Future

Najuma Shares With Us Her Experience With Universal Love Alliance And Their Sponsorship Of Her Education, Something She Had Never Been Offered Before


Najuma was given the gift of education through the sponsorship by Universal Love Alliance.

My mother has always been a poor woman and unhappy. She had lost hope in my going to school. But now, when I wake up and go to school, she smiles.

Until recently I never went to school. My father died when I was still a baby. My mother has had cancer for years. A year ago the ULA community coordinator in our area visited my home to see my mother. ULA team in our community visits sick people … HIV positive people and those suffering from cancer. They supply them with nutritious foods to improve their heath, and teach them healthy eating habits.

When the ULA people came to visit my mother she asked them if they could help to sponsor my education. The coordinator promised to contact the ULA administration head offices. After few weeks, a ULA officer from Kampala came to our home. She collected data from me, my mother, and our local government officer. Two days later we received news that ULA would sponsor my education.


I began going to school and am in primary four. Now I know how to read and write. ULA is helping me get the education I need to live my dream. I want to study and be a doctor.
