BRIEF BIO ON SCHOLAR:
Juma hails from Kalungu district in central- Uganda. He is the fourth born in a family of seven children. He lost his father at quite a tender age, which left him and his siblings in the hands of a single peasant mother. Through a lot of financial hardship, the mother managed to support him through the primary and the lower secondary levels of education. However, she could not afford to take him to high school. Luckily, The MasterCard Foundation at Brac came to his aid when they offered him a scholarship. With the Scholarship opportunity, he went to Wagwa High School for his Ordinary level and Masaka Secondary School for Advanced level. He excelled in his final exams in 2014; he was then offered another Scholarship by The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Makerere University to pursue his University education as well. He is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Laboratory Science Technology at Makerere University. He is indebted to The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program for the gerous support that has enabled him get thus far in his academic journey.
