BRIEF BIO ON SCHOLAR

Yatimu hails from remote district of Bugiri in eastern Uganda. He is the first born in a family of nine children. His mother has always been his only support, through simple subsistence farming. He supported him through the primary section of his education, but she could not afford to take him through the secondary education. Luck was on his side when The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Brac offered him a scholarship. With the Scholarship secured, he was able to join Busoga College, Kigulu for his O’level, he excelled with a first grade and proceeded to Kiira College, Butiki for his A’levels. While at Kiira College, Yatimu was involved in voluntary services like garbage collection in Kamuli and Jinja towns. He excelled in his final exams in 2014, and he scooped another Scholarship from The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Makerere University, for a Bachelor of Commerce degree. He is indebted to The MasterCard Foundation for all the support they have rendered to him that has enabled him to access quality secondary and University education.
