I was inspired by the stories of many young people whose parents are struggling to find school fees to keep them in school. One story is that of Byakatonda Richard as narrated by his mother Nabulime Jackline, a resident of Jinja-Kalori, a Kampala suburb. This lady had previously approached members of a women writers' association to solicit for funding for her boy child who was under 10 at the time and was going to be operated due to bladder a problem. She has since struggled to see the child through school single-handedly using her meager savings after selling maize on the street. She recently approached members of the same organization, where I am a member, and shared her touching story once again. This time she narrated that her child, who is now in senior five, had been informed that he would not sit for the end-of-year exams if he did not pay the full amount. She is desperately searching for money because she wants him to finish high school and go to University. After many years of working, Richard's mother is weighed down by the school fees burden and she has to continuously beg well wishers to come to her aid. I would like to add my voice to voices of resilient women like Jackline, who never give up on their children despite the prevailing economic hardships. Many of us are what we are because we were given the opportunity to complete school. I would like to call upon all those people who desire to see a brighter future for Uganda's school children to donate to this noble cause. This money will be used to support Richard and a dozen other children to complete their primary and secondary school education.
