A huge congratulations to Vicky Modong who has graduated with her degree in Human Rights, Peace and Humanitarian Interventions, we wish her well in her job search.
I hope this email finds you well, we thank God Almighty for the gift of life and his protection amidst this pandemic.I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for the generous sponsorship that has been provided for me. I am happy to report that through the sponsorship, I managed to complete my university and I obtained my first degree in Human Rights peace and Humanitarian Interventions and that I graduated with a second class upper.As a refugee in Uganda, there was little or perhaps no hope for a girl like me to study up to the university, not because of other things but because of financial resources required for a child to carry on with his or her education, so in most cases, you find that many of our people have not studied up to this level. It is not easy for a refugee parent who has no job to finance the education of his children in a country not one’s own. But today I want to thank God Almighty for making it possible for me to achieve my first degree, a thank you to CRESS for giving me the chance to study financially and spiritually, you have been there for me. To my family I can’t say enough because they never gave up on me, they always took it upon themselves to help me in any way possible and to see that the girl child is educated. Thank you very much. And to every individual in CRESS UK who generously contributed to my tuition, thank you so much, my God will always bless you.
I graduated on the 18th of December because of the pandemic, we had to graduate from home virtually so we had to follow the program from home. But all in all am grateful and thankful for everything.Am still in search of a job and I know one day I will be successful and get one. I wish to start anywhere, from volunteering positions up, all is fine as long as I will get skills and experience that will help me build my CV.Thank you CRESS
It really does mean so much for refugee students to be allowed to continue in education. Enrollment of refugees in higher education is just 3% and globally, at secondary level there are only about 7 refugee girls for every 10 refugee boys enrolled.
