“I took on the position of head teacher in a UPE school when the school was in a dilapidated state. I managed to convince the teachers to teach without salary for several months. I also convicted parents to bring their children to the school driving the enrollment through the roof. Now the whole community is being transformed due to lower rates of school drops," says Simony Berna Olonya, Watoto Church Bweyogerere

“We had a perennial problem in the budget process where government claimed it did not have enough money to spend on drugs. I was able to look for all the money the government thought it was spending on drugs which was getting diverted, and I centralised in one purse to reduce wastage of tax payers’ money,” says Moses Kamabare, CEO National Medical Stores, Watoto Church Kyengera.
