In their Own Words

Gorett

Despite passing my S.6 exams with high marks, I dropped out of school because we could not afford the university fees. I came to WITU as a school drop out and left as a computer scientist. I am now employed as a web developer for a startup in Kampala.

I am grateful to WITU as it helped me jumpstart my career in technology and, through YEAP, provided the opportunity to work with a global technology company. WITU’s innovative and creative programs helped bridge the gap for me.

When I joined WITU, I didn't have a job and could not work because I could not afford to pay for daycare for my children. During the entrepreneurship class, I was motivated to follow my dream of starting a daycare center to support women in the slums so they had access to affordable childcare and could go to work themselves.
