Dedicated to help girls in Uganda
"I have been helped and now, I also would like to help others. I strive to be a responsible citizen who contributes to a better world. That's my mission."
Juliet was born in Nakasongola, Uganda. She is the eldest of four siblings. While volunteering for the NGO Cornerstone Development Africa, she learned about NG's scholarship program, applied immediately and studied at NG University from 2015 - 2018. Juliet's passion and academic interest developed very early in her studies: she wanted to help school girls in Uganda, who are forced to stay at home during their menstruation. Due to the lack of sanitary materials, attending school is humiliating for them. Thus, they miss out on important parts of their education. Juliet intensified her research and finally wrote her Bachelor's thesis about this topic. When she graduated from NG University in December 2017 and returned home to Uganda, she soon volunteered at the international organization “Days for Girls”, that produces re-usable sanitary pads and sells them to businesses, organizations or individuals, in order to enable girls and women to attend school or work during the time of their menstruation.
Proving her competencies and talents to the organization, Juliet now works as the Communication Coordinator for the enterprise program of the Ugandan branch of “Days for Girls”. Juliet is responsible for all communication with potential partners or donors, for enterprises in Africa, Asia and South America and she oversees the enterprise registration process for "Days for Girls"' franchises.
We are very happy and proud that Juliet can put the knowledge she gained in her studies at NG University to such a great use.Visit Project
