My name is Nabatanzi Barbara. I was born in 1988 in a family of five and am the fourth born. I have two sisters and two brothers.

I studied my primary education from Jinja S.D.A. primary school. My father died when I was in primary three in 1996 and it was a very hard time for to study because I had remained with only my grandmother and mother who were both jobless. My mother and grandmother struggled to look for money to educate me so I studied and finished my primary seven, but when I finished there was not money for me to advance to senior one.

On a Sabbath in 2001, grandmum talked to pastor Kudhongania about my situation and about how discouraged I was about being left behind by my friends who were advancing. When Pastor Kudhongonia heard my story from grandmum, he told her about Kirabo Foundation and registered me to join.

When grand mum told me about it I was so happy because I knew I was going for my secondary education, so through Kirabo Foundation I went to Bugema Adventist School and managed to obtain my Uganda Certificate of Education. With further assistance from Kirabo Foundation I am now pursuing a bachelor’s degree in social work and community development and am in my final year at Kyambogo University.

I enjoy helping those in difficult circumstances and my experience as an orphan enables me to understand what they are going through.
I thank Kirabo Foundation because it brought back happiness to my life and also thank Pastor Kudhongonia. If it wasn’t for Kirabo I really don’t know where I would be. I always pray for Kirabo and the people who run the organization.

The Foundation has been a helping hand to me. Thank you.

I remain Nabtanzi Barbara.
