Mutumba Robert Ssebuliba

GENDER: Male

NATIONALITY: Ugandan

DISTRICT OF ORIGIN: Mityana

PROGRAMME: Bachelor of Agribusiness Management

COLLEGE: College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences

STUDY PERIOD: 2015 to 2018

BRIEF BIO ON SCHOLAR

Robert is the second born in a family of nine children. He hails from the rural district of Mityana, in central Uganda.  He was raised and supported by his step mother till today. Through significant financial challenges, the step mother paid his school fees through the primary level of education. However, she could not afford to take him through the secondary education. When all hope of furthering his education was diminishing, The MasterCard Foundation at Brac restored the hope by offering a Scholarship, which saw him through the lower secondary level of education and through high school, at Hana mixed school. In 2014, he excelled in his A’ level exams, but had no hope of joining University. Luck struck again, The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Makerere University offered him a scholarship. He is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Agribusiness Management. His vision is to go even further with his education by undertaking post graduate studies in Agribusiness Management, and launch himself in the world of academia. He is very grateful to The MasterCard Foundation for restoring his hope of attaining both Secondary and University education, which hope he had lost.
