Josephine’s mother and father are both peasant farmers and do not earn enough income for their family. When Josephine was in high school, her father lost his job and could not afford to send her and her 8 siblings to school, forcing them to drop out. Josephine is the only child in her family that has had the opportunity to attend higher education. This is because of Beautiful World Canada in partnership with Reach One Touch One Ministries (ROTOM), one of Beautiful World’s local partners in Uganda.

For nine years, Josephine was out of school was to  but dreamt about become a teacher. Even with challenges, she never gave up. After years of searching, Josephine found ROTOM. She applied for the Beautiful World Canada scholarship and was ecstatic when she was accepted.
