Iam who Iam because I do what I know and know what I do! My names are Jude Lambda, Iam the 3rd last born in a family of 8 children I spent almost all my childhood with my mother in a rural family setting struggling to make ends meet. Later I moved to town i.e Kampala joined secondary school, then tertiary institution I started working at an early age all my work experience has been in the NGO world where I have experienced and seen people suffer, the street children, children in refugee camps, bright & talented children dropping out of school for reasons beyond their capacity. In my own rural village I see how single mothers struggle to put food on the table this has inspired me a lot and I vowed to do something under my capacity to change this script. Currently Iam working with Pearl Integrated Development Agency-Uganda (PIDA-Uganda). Pearl Integrated Development Agency (PIDA) is a registered Community Based Nonprofit Organization CBS/105/014/015 operating at the grass root level in Busia District Eastern Uganda to help single mothers, vulnerable children, orphans and girls lead a meaningful life. PIDA was founded for women by women. Our program areas cover education, health, food security & agriculture, livelihood and sanitation.
Pearl Integrated Development Agency (PIDA) was established in 2014 with 20 full time members formed in consultation with the community. The organization was formed after the women and youth realized the effects of illiteracy, climate change, HIV & AIDS, high poverty levels, high dropout rates of girls from schools which is often coupled with early marriages and unemployment, were greatly affecting their lives.
Iam passionate about charity work and improving the welfare of humanity, I like to learn because our organization is very small that makes me eager at any opportunity where I can share the expertise and experience from friends, well wishers other organisations around the World. I was drawn to PIDA-Uganda because of its mission of building entrepreneurship skills among local communities; it is a worthwhile endeavor and exciting.
