"Because we are all in this together to rock the world"
- Irene Baseke, 18 years old. Sponsored from age 12
Grade 3 Teacher
"I was inspired to become a teacher when I realised that education is freedom for children in Uganda, the only way to break the cycle of
poverty. Teaching has given me the opportunity to provide for my own family, however it is truly difficult to sustain a job in Uganda."
"Teaching the future generation is a privilege as it enables me to contribute to changing the lives of children and their families forever. I dreamed of becoming a teacher when I was a young girl, I used to love playing
teachers in the village, and today I still have the same passion."
Grade 5 Teacher
"I have been given the opportunity to transform the lives of children, small and big. Teaching widens knowledge through research, it is a calling. It promotes team work and enables a teacher to discover and understand students differences and builds relationships. Being a teacher allows me to promote strength, freedom and education to the children of Uganda."
