Fighting for Equality and Human Rights

My name is John, a 29 year old male Ugandan, a High school teacher by Profession. I started up a Primary school known as "Source of Light Primary School", located in one of the rural communities in Uganda. The school has 320 children and a teaching staff of 10 members. The major objectives of this dream were:

  • To help the rural child get the opportunity to access primary education.
  • To promote children's rights and fight against any form of child abuse.
  • To uplift the status of the Girl-Child by ensuring that they are in school
  • To identify and promote children's talents like Art & Craft, Music among others

As a human being who advocates for personal freedom and human rights, I believe to use the little resources I have to educate, and ensure that a child knows their freedoms, rights and independence of reasoning so that they shape the future that is conducive and free form oppression, discrimination and gender-based violence. I fight for LGBT rights as well.

My prayer is to connect with as many friends internationally as possible with whom I can share the same beliefs and strategies to make this world a free one.

John,

Uganda.

Hello, John,

Welcome to World Pulse! It's a joy to know a new voice from Uganda is rising up.

I'm amazed that you are able to put up a school with more than 300 students at a very young age. That's commendable! Thank you for bridging the gap on education.

We're happy you are here. Please share more stories. The more you do, the more you build connections with this global community.

Welcome Home!

Hi J, what a great passion you have for your country. Making those children to see their lives through you is more than just talking With and empty mouth. Gods time is the best and may he replenish the hands that givet as Bob marlie rightly said than those that taket.
Love. My regard.
