Meet Mutesi Noliene, a 13-year-old Children of Grace Scholar's Program student in her second year of secondary school. Noliene lost both her parents at a young age and now lives with two guardians who are of no blood relation. Her guardians originally brought Noliene into their home to work as a housekeeper, but when they saw her love for learning and potential to do well, they decided to help her go to school.
Unfortunately, one of her guardians was in a terrible car accident that left her unable to work. Without this income, they were no longer able to pay Noliene’s school fees, and her hope of going on to secondary school was lost.
When Noliene heard about Children of Grace’s Scholar’s Program, she immediately came to the office to apply. Her bright personality and genuine spirit were quickly apparent, and her desire to further her education and reach her dreams were undeniable. Noliene was granted a scholarship to attend Iganga Secondary School, one of the top girls schools in the region. She is currently in the top ten percent of her class. Upon completing her secondary education, Noliene hopes to study medicine. She dreams of one day using her career to care for orphaned children like herself.
