Hassan is the second born in the family of two. Together with his sibling, they were raised by their single mother in the remote area of Sheema district, in Western Uganda. Through a lot of financial hardships, his mother managed to take him through the primary and lower secondary level of education. When the hope of joining high school was diminishing due to lack of school fess, The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Brac came to his rescue, when they offered him a scholarship that took him to Mbarara High School for his A ‘level education. He excelled in his final exams in 2014, but the hope of joining University was bleak. Luck was on his side, when yet again, The MasterCard Foundation at Makerere University offered him another scholarship to study a Bachelor of Urban and Regional planning at Makerere University. His vision and dream is to transform his community into a well-planned urban area and make it better than he found it. He is forever grateful to The MasterCard Foundation for making his dream become a reality.
