Immaculate Nassanga , Doreen Muyama and Prissy Kembabazi Dilly (Prissy).
We join the scholars to thank the TGF USA for enabling them reach such a milestone which otherwise would not have been if there was no support. Myself and Evelyn received lots of hugs from the families of the scholars!
It was interesting to meet Doreen's Aunt . We had heard about her during the screening interview for the scholarship. Doreen's aunt is a midwife in Mbale and she was the primary care giver to Doreen. Her aunt had such an influence on this Doreen such that all she wanted to be was a Nurse! Well, she got her wish and now her Mum and Aunt are so proud! When we asked Doreen why she wanted to be a Nurse she said that she wanted to be like her Aunt who was greatly respected in the community, because of her craft . Doreen is a Nursing intern at Mbale Hospital.
Immaculate is on the job hunt. We met with her aunt who has been her guardian. Her aunt asked us to say to TGF," Mwebale nyoo nze ani" which literary means, "Thank you ever so much... who am I to deserve this?"
We will update our readers when Immaculate gets employment. She is keeping her finger crossed because she wants to work for Masaka hospital which is within her home district .
BTW, all the parents and guardians are dressed in the traditional clothing called " gomesi"
