Eunice

Once homeless, Eunice is now pursuing a degree in Finance and Accounting at Makerere University Business School. Eunice was very young when she lost her father, who was killed in war in Northern Uganda. Her mother, who was pregnant, escaped with Eunice and her elder sister. A missionary sister brought them to Kampala.

Life for Eunice was very difficult in Kampala. Her mother, who had been a child bride, had no formal education and very limited means of providing for the family. Eunice and her siblings lived with their mother on the streets of Kampala until her mother was able to find a job as a housekeeper.  When the family was finally able to rent a home of their own, the rain would flood through the tin roof, making it difficult to sleep or live in.

When Eunice reached highschool age, her mother was no longer able to afford the fees for tuition, and the family found themselves homeless once again and collecting plastic bottles to sell for just enough money to survive. Eunice dropped out of school and she and her elder sister began looking for work, that would provide no more than subsistence wages.

During this time, Eunice learned of Beautiful World Canada through Reach One Touch One Ministries. She applied for and was awarded a full Beautiful World scholarship. Today, Eunice is the hope of her entire family that through education, they will be lifted out of poverty for generations to come.  Eunice wants to be an inspiration to the many girls whose parents died in the war in Northern Uganda and for them to know that with some support, their futures can be bright.
