Espoir has completed his university orientation and begun classes in Information Technology at the Uganda Christian University.
When our Oaks are first "adopted" by The Strongest Oak Foundation, they state a long-term objective. Espoir's objective was to "Graduate from high school and attend an English university in Uganda or Rwanda." With his hard work and determination, Espoir has not only reached his goal but exceeded expectations by completing his English requirement (for university entrance) in record time. Congratulations Espoir!
We extend our thanks to those who helped Espoir reach this milestone:
- Oak Leader, Pastor Samuel (who first recommended Espoir to The Strongest Oak), supported Espoir while he completed his high school in the DRC and helped with his move to Uganda;
- the Kulika team, including Ugandan Oak Leader Mathias , who facilitated Espoir's move to Uganda and helped him register in school and get settled in his new country;
- fellow Oak in Uganda, Charles Mugabe, who helped Espoir get the medical attention he needed when he first moved to Uganda; and
- Isabela Waglay, Espoir’s mentor, for providing guidance and support.
