BRIEF BIO ON SCHOLAR

Winfred is born in the family of nine siblings and eight other dependants. She was supported by her parents using their meagre income to go through her primary education. When she joined lower secondary, the parents could not afford the fees anymore; she lost all hope of ever furthering her education.  Luckily The MasterCard Foundation at Brac came to her rescue, they offered her a scholarship, and with it, she was able to complete her A’level at Makerere High School Migadde. She excelled in her final exams, but she had no hope of joining University. Luck was on her side, yet again The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Makerere University offered her scholarship to Study at Makerere University. She is currently pursuing a Bachelor in Agribusiness Management, and her dream is to become an agriculturalist, and she hopes set up a farm and help needy people as a way of giving back to society.  She is grateful to The MasterCard Foundation for restoring her hope, when all seemed bleak.
