It is now 14 years since we enrolled Ssemwanga Moses on Youth With A vision support.
Moses narrates his story and we would like to share it with you.
“It was in 2007 by then I was in P. 3 life was hard for me as well as my family I had spent 2 years without attending school due to poverty. My hope for education had gradually disappeared. I and my siblings were raised up by our single mother who is uneducated and a peasant farmer. It was so difficult for my mother to get all of our basic needs.
When I got enrolled by Youth With A Vision things started changing slowly.
Youth With A Vision started taking care of my education by paying my school fees and giving me scholastic materials while at Masaka Army Primary school until when I completed my Primary level. Again with the support of Youth With A Vision, I joined Kijjabwemi Secondary School for my Secondary education. I have been motivated and guided by Youth With A Vision to stay focused in everything I do. Click to learn more about our child sponsorship program
Benefited in the Youth Finance scheme
In 2015 I got a chance to be among the pioneer beneficiaries of the Youth Finance Scheme. I received a start-up capital that helped me to start the Perry Brick Making project. This project changed my family a lot as we generated income that enabled us to meet our day-to-day needs, it also helped me to support my young siblings with school fees to further their studies.

Received support in the covid-19 lockdown
In 2020, when the whole world was hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, everything was put on a standstill and accessing essentials such as food and a sanitizer was hard but, Youth With A vision continued to provide food and essentials for me and my family.
When I had no hope of furthering my studies, again with the support from Youth With A vision I got a sponsor by names of Cindy Godwin and I joined Muteesa I Royal University where I am in my first year pursuing a career in business administration.
I am studying so hard to excel and become an exemplary citizen. When I complete my education and start earning some money, I want to support less privileged children that find hardship in their day-to-day life. My vote of thanks goes to my sponsor and Youth With A Vision for the great work they have done to pave a way for my bright future.
I am so grateful for all your support. May God bless you all''.
