Pearl Adraako Komaki
Pearl’s parents were supportive of their daughter receiving an education and tried to scrape together enough for tuition. Money was so scarce at times that she had to drop out twice. Misfortune fell upon Pearl as both of her parents ended up passing away. Pearl, now an orphan, would not have made it to high school let alone the university level without E3 Africa’s sponsorship support and her adoptive U.S. “mom”. Not letting anything keep her from her dream, she has graduated with a
degree in Education from Gulu University. Pearl now works with World Vision as an Assistant Program Officer in the Adjumani District. She is very happy working with the Southern Sudanese Refugees and is now a champion of hope to the needy children in the refugee camp.
Peter Vuamaiku comes from Kulemi, a remote village of the Moyo District which is nearest to the Southern Sudan border. Hope was incredibly bleak for Peter to attend school because both of his parents did not approve of him attending. One of the toughest decisions he ever made, Peter ran away and took refuge at his uncle’s home. His hope was that his uncle would send him to school. Even though it was an extreme sacrifice for the family, the uncle supported Peter's education. The struggle to afford tuition
eventually became overbearing and Peter had to drop out of school. Not all hope was lost as his dream became a reality through E3 Africa's sponsorship support. Peter graduated in 2015 from Rubuga School of Nursing and his dream of becoming a medical nurse has come to fruition. He assists in the delivery of expectant mothers while also serving as a lab attendant at Friendly Care Clinic in the town of Moyo.
Charles loved chemistry, biology, math, history, business, English, ...there wasn't a subject that he wasn't interested in! He had a yearing to become a doctor but being that his mother was the sole provider of the family, she did not have a stable income. In 2013, Charles completed his studies and earned a diploma in nursing from Lira Comprehensive Nursing School. He now serves as a nurse in the Ugandan Air Force, a prestigious position to hold. Charles’ first assignment was heading a military dispensary in the
Moroto District. Presently, Charles is receiving further training to participate in a peace-keeping mission in Somalia. Through Charles, E3 Africa/EENU is contributing to regional stability.
Scovia's hearts desire was to be able to make an impact in her village but she didn't know how that was going to be possible if she wasn't able to go to school. As most Ugandan children are, Scovia was very interested in school, but her parents weren’t able to pay for her education. Through an E3 Africa sponsorship, in 2012, Scovia earned a certificate in Primary Education and is now teaching in Moyo. Scovia has also started a small business supplying groceries to those in her village. By receiving an education, she was finally able to fulfill her heart's desire of
giving back to her community and making a difference in the lives around her. As another way of paying it forward as she is so grateful for her education, Scovia now pays the tuition for two of her sisters to attend school.
Alone. Brokenhearted. Scared. It is quite unfathomable to image a future for yourself if you are an orphan living in the very poor village of Opia Vura in the Northwestern Arua District. Eddy Odaga still looked to the sky and prayed that God would make a way for him to survive. Through the generous hearts of E3 Africa sponsors, Eddy was sponsored in 2005 and his life has been forever changed. Eddy graduated from Moyo Technical Institute in 2011 with a diploma in construction. He now owns a construction
company, employing 4 workers and builds small homes for rental. Eddy is very grateful for the sponsorship and support he received for his education, knowing that without the help of his sponsors to receive an education, as an orphan he would not have been able to emerge from poverty.
