Emma remembers how her studies in Gulu were interrupted in 2003 by rebels from the Lord’s Resistance Army. “At times we could run out of classrooms, hide in the bush, and miss out classes.But I had to continue with my studies.” Emma won her Ordinary Certificate of Education in 2007, her Advanced Certificate at Namugongo school in Kampala, and a degree in Community-based Rehabilitation at Kyambogo University (2013). After interning with the Gulu local government she joined GDPU in 2015 as a parent facilitator under the project “Survival and Inclusion of Disabled Children in Uganda.” In 2017/2018 Emma was a focal point in the GDPU partnership with Action on Disability and Development (ADD). She is administrator and deputy program manager for GDPU’s WASH program to install accessible toilets at primary schools. Emma loves traveling, watching movies and making new friends. Her dream is to win a scholarship to study psychology or public health in the USA
